I was given a fuselage mould by a flying buddy. It was a thin mould made for joining in the old "cold join" , rolled tape method.
I have been modifying it to make it suitable for putting it in a vac bag and venting the bladder to atmosphere.
It is nearly done; pictures of that later.
Meanwhile, I have been working on framing up the four wing planels, using the so called "laser method".
Some pictures attached.

I now need dryer weather to do the composite work. We are experiencing torrential, flooding rain here.
