Okay, now the fuselage. One reason I like WWI planes is the simple designs of the fuselages. Back in the day the planes had to be relatively simple to build - hence simple designs - hence easier papermodeling today.

The top of the fuselage is curves, the bottom flat.

I want to start joining the fuselage about the midpoint so I add a small internal splice to one side. It's hard to start the joint by gluing up both sides at once, so do one at a time.

Then glue it up the other side, beinng very careful to match it up as precisely as possible while the glue sets.

Once the splice is started it is much easier to glue both sides at once. So I work toward the back to finish this joint in two splice sections. I find doing it all at once too difficult - much easier a bit at a time.

Next I'll finish joining the fuselage together.
