3D plane project... need help with fuselage creating

So... with the use of the "make group-edit group-edit length" steps, I have been successful in being able to make ribs for wings, also making the fuselage "ribs?".

Anyhow... problem is I may get the height right but the sides are still fat, they're not getting skinnier fast enough, as you can see if you open the model it has flaws.. especially the little canopy...

I've gotten "the look" to be right on my general profile outline of my fuselage I'm happy about that... still working on the ailerons on the wings, I have an idea for hinging I just have to make more clearance so that the ailerons can rotate 60 or more degrees

I downloaded your file and looked at it.

How wide do you want the fuselage to be and what length? Same goes for wingspan.

Do you want the fuselage to be rounded off instead of being all boxy? I take it when you say it isn't getting skinnier you mean that it is not tapering to the rear? Do you want the fuselage to be 6 inches wide like the top view shows? I did a little work on the canopy but I am a bit confused what you mean and what you want as the end product.

Well the end product should look like most 3D plans like an EDGE or Katana
take for instance the plane in this video (Amazing!!!)
Red Bull Air Race and Nigel Lamb's new MXS-R (6 min 5 sec)


And yes that is what I mean tapering to the back, getting skinnier and skinnier from a top view.
The main thing I wanted was a flat base (for simple building) and then the standard rounding top, the canopy needs work, sorry I'm not able to provide additional views etc.. I am really busy at the moment have midterm exams so got to study

thank you guys for the help
