HAAAAHAAAA!! You're building a mini me of 227W! Make sure you put in a smoke system and a graphic of the Russian Roulette Air Combat Group patch. Here are some pics for reference.

Cutting Fuse

First made an outline of the plane including cannopy, wing and elevator saddles, etc using 2D view for scale ... then cut the profile in 3/16 balsa.
Using a "Bread knife" cut 2 rectangular Shapes out of 2" EPP.
Then glued (3M 77) one EPP to one side of the profile. From there cut the EPP by following the profile using a "Jewlers saw" (I made one with a 1 foot extension). Dito for the other side.
The rough shaping of the fuse (as see on pictures)was done with a "Stanley SureForm".
