I have now started on the sheeting and planking of the fuselage. It is pretty straight forward at the back because the fuselage is a straight forward ovoid cone shape with no compound curves. I have been able to cut the 1/8 balsa sheet to a long triangles, moisten the outer surface and glue and pin it into place. I have resorted to traditional planking going towards the top of the fuselage where the curve tightens. The front of the fuselage will all be planked to cope with the compound curves there.
If I keep going at this pace I will be keeping up with Chris Williams! (in your dreams Brian!!!)
