Very nice job on a complex fuselage. The lack of internal formers makes it all the more impressive.

Re: glues. Check out Lineco. It's a purer form of PVA adhesive with a neutral pH. A bit thicker than Elmer's, but still easy to work with. Used it on every model I've built for the last decade or more. You can usually find it at art-supply stores.

Thanks for the info dhanners. Adhesives aren't any different from a lot of things I guess- if you're prepared to pay a bit more for quality it's better for you in the long run.

You cannot use normal copy paper as it is not thick enough.What is the best paper to put to use when you print it out?

This IS normal (80gsm) copy paper. Though I haven't tried it, I would think anything thicker would be harder to build this little bird with.

If I did go with thicker, I think 100gsm would probably be the limit.

Thanks philo426.

And on. For the canopy to be a good fit a little bit of surgery was required on the fuse- a small vee cut to allow the fuse to pull in a bit. See photo.

Lining up the wing's correct fore and aft position I knew was gonna be a challenge so decided the best way to achieve this was to make sure the four wing strut attachment points aligned. The design provides four printed little oval shapes to help here.

The main centre pylon's position on the fuse allows more variation than it's wing join, so I spot glued to the wing to check incidence. The Catalina has a fairly pronounced positive incidence angle (this contributes to it's tail-high appearance in flight) but the angle on here was a bit too much (see sixth photo). The easiest way out was to cut down the forward top of the pylon a bit. Didn't remove too much- see pics.

While waiting for pylon/wing joint to dry I did the waist blisters- look pretty good.

More tomorrow and thanks for your interest and comments.
