Default 42% Dalton 260 Build

Ok im starting up another build thread on the 42% 260.I start with the fuselage.Because all of the joints are light ply and hardwood in the fuselage I prefer to use wood glue for the constuction as it gives more time for the glue to penatrate than ca. Locate formers F3 through F7.

Check over all joints and make sure everything is held to gether. Use tape and clamps as needed. Set this assembly aside to dry.
