Before the top is covered, struts for wires are glued in.

A mix of epoxy + micobaloons applied on the fuselage. Looks ugly, but it will look different when sanded away.

New pictures coming soon. Summer and building of this Ka - 8 in the picture is the reason there was no update for so long.

That looks impressive. Did you use a glass cloth under the epoxy/microballon mix?

Yes fuselage is covered in glass cloth, several layers of it. Two parts of fuselage individually first and again when they are put together.

Whole wing is attached with elastics to keep it aligned correctly.
