Framework

I start this build beginning with the framework / skeleton for the fuselage, as per the first page of diagrams. This will be the first model I've built that uses this skin-over-framework construction method. At this scale, I printed the framework onto 110lb cardstock, which is not quite as thick as the slots in the framework, but should be more than strong enough once assembled. For the lengthwise pieces, I laminated this 110lb stock to a 65lb card sheet, which brings the thickness to the right dimension, but it's difficult to cut out, so I'm only doing so on certain parts.

Off to a good start:
