800-size fuselage


I have seen many projects on the web but I still thinking about how they connect the front and rear part of the fuselage to each other.
Do the use glue or/and glassfibre or......???
Anyway must the connection area need a lot of work to hide the connection. And how to do that properly if the fuselage are prepainted already and you don't have the exact painting colour??
If somebody have some pics or can link to some thread which show that I would be lucky and clear my thoughts about it

The market selling fuselahe also use twoidea to join the tail show in photo .it is A i call it over lap . it is a very propular idea in the model . you just send the painting out (you can see the friberglass),and add layer friberglass or carbon cloth to (doubler) the join position .at least 20-30mm longer than the over lap area .Use slow cure epoxy resin . The B photo is some models using this idea .the connecting area you must clean and sand the painting out and you must use 4-6 tapping screw and add a ply wood former behind each friberglass fuselage if possible .

Both A and B we have use . It depend the customer (dealer require ) .if the models tail both size (diameter) is big both A and B is no problem , If the models is small . like 450 or 500 size , A is better .Because the inside room is small . if let B type , it have a join lip , the inside diameter get smaller . the tail boom more diffcult go inside , so small size fuselage also use A , big size fuselage use A and B . Smartmodel fuselage are going big small so Type B is also using now .

The baby come out the mold today . The weight for full boby with parts (no ply wood) is 750g only . it is one piece body .No need the A/B type join the fuselage . still shipping easy . it is 600 size for standard 600 mechanic , the scale rotor head also come out very soon . 650mm scale rotor blades prefect match it . The new weighted 120g scale blades very nice result . The fuselage is extremely strong the front is 3 layer glass cloth and tail part is 2 layer . same germany epoxy .The window frame is full carbon . so very happy keep the weight so light .
