Finishing up the fuse sides

After gluing on the ply doubler, I flipped the frame again from some last finishing touches. I must say I can really enjoy all these perfect joints:

The front half of the second fuse side, which came out even better than the first one I think:

And back together for some final sanding, sanding out the last little imperfections:

Stacked them one more time to check alignment, front:

I couldn’t resist dreaming a bit, it does almost fly doesn’t it…? :-)
