Miss Canada Senior, Fuselage Part 1

I've now moved onto constructing the fuselage of the Miss Canada Senior. The original kit did not have longerons long enough for the bottom of the fuselage and required splicing two 1/8" strips together, however, I cut my own from 1/8" sheet balsa so I didn't have to do the splicing.

I also added extra diagonal strengtheners in on the nose and under-wing sections of the fuselage to add more rigidity; the extra weight was minimal. Next step is to put these together to complete the box fuselage.
