Spitfire fuselage

Tricky bit, the fuselage. I started by building up the left side on the plan. Here’s the keel and formers.

Once all the stringers were in place, it was released from the plan and the right side  built onto the completed left side. I ended up with this.

Time to let everything harden off before tidying it up and starting work on the nose, then sanding, etc..  I’ve had to develop a very gentle touch as the wood snaps extremely easily!
