Starting fuselage

I took a little break in the summer while the weather was nice and was flying more than I was building. Now that the weather has taken a bit of a turn for the worse I’m back to the building board. 

I’ve decided to start work on the fuselage and nacelles and keep the wings on the back burner for a while. I quite enjoy building things together rather than boxing them off, it keeps the build interesting if nothing else as well as making sure parts come together correctly before they’re finished.

I’ve also been busily researching landing gear over the last few months. More on those later. Here is the fuse so far. 

Here are the individual strips that make up the fuselage formers. 

The rest of the formers are cut from 1/8th ply. Here are some of formers for the fuselage and nacelles.
