Thanks for starting the thread. I've got a short kit too. I won't be making it soon, but I'm really looking forward to it.

Fuselage


here are the pics from the lower half of the fuselage construction, formers are set in place and then planked with 1/16 balsa, the top half will be constructed in the same manner. I plan on glassing the entire fuse with 3/4 oz glass and polycrylic.

more pic's


a couple more pics with inlet duct and first section of exhaust duct installed, I decided to install the top half of the formers with additional braces between the top and bottom halves, and plank once everything is in place. The plans say to build the top and bottom halves seperate then join them with epoxy.

the saga continues
