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.
