Thank's Ray my friend!

In the last night I made a engine nacele, the construction method is same of fuselage...







I glue all segments...



After I cut the wing area, wit sharp #11 knife, is necessary a minor adjustment in cut area for fit in wing.









The nacelles is ready...

Next step tail and floaters fit...

Hi people! I retake the build...

I build the tail and floaters in this weekend.









The process for horizontal tail is same int the underwing build. I made a cut in fuselage to fit the piece...













I glue the floaters with CA, for adjust and aligment, I use plans and pics

Finally I made a foam jig to build struts and superior wing.











Regards.

Really coming along just great! I love the 'large; plane on the floats. Also like the very 'snub' nose on this plane.

I start the gluing of higher wing, in this step of process,
the wing is still slightly crooked, but the glue of external struts and use for jig is made a natural correction...
