Going from 2D to 3D

This chapter is a massive step forward. So far you've made flat bulkheads and relativly flat fuselage sides. Just a bunch of bits that don't look anything like an airplane. Now you get to stick them all together. All you're 2 dimensional parts suddenly become a 3 dimentional "boat".


The best tip I can give on this chapter is to read the plans VERY carefully. All the info you need is there. Cut the cloth for the botom oversize. It's amazing how it seems to get shorter when you lay it down. Make sure everything is level and properly oriented. Measure twice and stick once, but don't sweat that last 1/100th of an inch. I found that twisting a cord between the sides helped pull everything together nicely.


After cure, sit in the "cockpit" with the significant other and take the obligatory picture.
