Scratch building a fuse 6 foot and 1-1/2" for 15 foot wing
Well to start of, i am scratch building a 6' and 1-1/2" fuse, for oranator....
the wing is already built at 15 feet....lets put the wing aside for now.
i started out glueing 2- 36" by 1/8" by 3" sheets together for the sides of the fuse...the cut is at a angle for strength...
i made 2 sides left and a right "duh" dont mind me.
then i added 1/4" by 3/8"strengtheners to each side of the fuse total 4 of them for the lenght of the fuse.
while the 2 sides dry, i started cuting out 8 of the 1/4" by 3/8 braces that will join the 2 sides together,total braces 16..... for the front i used aircraft ply.
heigth is 3 inchs and tappers down at the tail at 2" the front tappers at a nice curve to the nose....will have to cut out some block wood for the nose.
more pic,s to follow and update

i started sheeting the middle of the fuse just behing were the wing saddle is and sheeting the under side from the nose back, i need to leave areas open to work on.
i cant think, i had a few drinks with the wife
soon i will cut out about 5 fuse walls were the control rods will pass thru,thats why i am leaving areas open.
well thats it for now....... need to take a break and get somthin to eat .
.......................well she had steak ready and baked potato also vegeee's
she wanted me to take a long break as it was 2 am.
