Well it's been a little while since iv posted.
Things have moved on a little bit and it's beginng to look like a 3D object now! Flu,work and some essential DIY have slowed things down but hopefully by the end of this week all the fuz frame will be glued up and I'll begin adding the cross braces and start on making and fitting the metalwork.

A couple of more shots ,
Not great images I'm afraid as I don't have as much light as I'd like in the workshop (I can't pull too many amps or my heater trips out!

Chris, is the curved top Spruce longeron permanent? If so, it will be very weak at the curved section, as Spruce has little strength cross-grain. You might be better served with a ply equivalent...

Hi Chris
It is glued in place now but could be substituted if you think it's not up too the job ? but I do have to add ply to either side to add some thickness to the top for carving a chamfer for the ply cladding.
It's also 3/16 thick spruce which I thought would be OK ?
