Hey, now that's looking a lot better already. Good recovery, and before you know it the setback will just be a funny story to tell at the flying field.

Good to see you back at it Paul. Getting the fuselage straight is an essential. As each pair of cross pieces are added (I do bottom and top together) the lower longerons are supported on a scrap of balsa to keep it flat and pinned to the plan.90 deg squares are used to get the sides vertical. Don't be tempted to glue the ends together until finished - a rubber band will do. If there is any twist when all the cross-pieces are fitted, the rudder post (fuselage ends) can be twisted a little until they a vertical and centred.
Keep up the good work - Pat

After the holidays hee we are again...
I spent some time making some experiments with the covering. I will try to cover the fuselage with this white film (it is similar to mylar, it is white, without cement and it is use for covering parcels/presents) .
I used contact cement and then strch the film with heat....not tu much. Then I will try to adhere the printed japanese tissue with the losange.
It seems to be a light covering.
