Cutting of corner reinforcements. They will be glued into the fuselage to allow the rounded bottom shape without loosing the strength of side and bottom connection.
Start of the inlet duct for the fan.
Inlet duct ready cut.
Trimming of fuselage front with hot wire. If the temperature of the wire is high enough it cuts through the PU glue without too much of a hitch.
First try to shape the fuselage. I have to revert to the sharp knife for the time, because I damaged my nice power supply for the special corner cutting tool.
Fuselage with the two main bulkheads. I used a selfmade sandwich foam/glass because I just had it. Naturally one can use 6mm (1/4") plywood for those. The wing stumps are still to be made.
Position of fan
Behind the fuselage is the UC blanc which I still had from another project.
View from the tail end. The bulkheads are not glued yet.
Indication of how inlet ducting fits in the fuselage.
Same from the other end
