Next up is the fuselage. This is built in 2 major sections, forward which has the drivers compartment (cockpit) and the after engine housing segment. the first series shows the fwd segment which is roughly oval in shape. don't forget to add a little weight to the nose section so that the aircraft will sit right on the nose gear. I built the first engine segment so that the little intake sections could be added. you bend the semi circle and place it on the last fwd section shown in the pics. it took me almost an hour to figure where and how they went...

The engine housing is up next. some of the photos are not entirely in sequence but the overall construction moves along working the the fuselage aft. The engine segments are elongated ovals and I do use connecting strips, just separated from the parent part to give a smoother profile...

Very cool and educational.
This is going to be the reference instructions/tutorial for the Cutlass.

Thank you all for the encouragement. It.s been a very weird year and getting back into paper is a bit of a challenge. I started with the dauntless as it was a traditional aircraft but this one is a bit different. I can feel the old neuro pathways of building trying to re connect. as well as joints trying to loosen up.
anyways enough of lame excuses, speaking of lame this offering is just the canopy. I don't use the printed on tabs unless I separate them. this makes for a smoother joint and the canopy is a good example as it's smaller and will show those bulges if they are not joined from the other side...

I thank you. the hardest parts of this build are just about done. the landing gear is a tiny bit of a puzzle the forward gear is a simple tube but has a horse shoe type appendage that a double set of wheels are attached to. there is a flat fwd strut that I believe when mounted should be long part down. You will see in the next few segments. I suggest adding those little knuckle joints as this solidifies the fwd wheels so they don't keep bending inwards. the main gear are tubes with a flat part that has puzzled me to no end. In the installation segment you can see my simple solution. it may not be what Bruno intended but what the heck, it looks kinda right...

Next to the next to the last step is attaching the rudders to wings and wings to fuselage. sand and dry fit the wing roots to fuselage and the parts should look pretty smooth-ish...

next to the last step is attaching the landing gear. the fwd gear is a simple stick the fwd strut in a hole and add the support arm. the gear doors are shown in place. the rear or main gear leg is inserted into a hole in the forward part of the rudder assembly. looking at pics of the real aircraft the gear should be almost at the fwd most part of the rudder assembly. imho this is a little flimsy so I poetically moved it back a little. the tricky part is the support strut.
I separated the strut as seen in the photo at the red line. the longer after strut is mounted as shown and the little 3 armed part rests on the bottom 2 enlargements with the little arm down and forward to support the forward door. I made these on type writer bond paper as the doors are then a little more easily bent into shape and more to scale thickness ...
