Building Seamaster Day 11: Wing & Fuse Bottom

Gluing balsa pieces to make up the bottom of the fuselage tail end

On March 17th I got the main spar of one of the wing panels glued in place (seen below) and also got the sheeting glued to the bottom of the tail.  Used hardwood strips to provide a surface to hold the sheeting in place with clamps along the bottom edges of the side while the glue dries (seen in the top photo).  Used a round container, elastic’d in place, to mould the sheeting up under the front bottom plate (as there is a curve in the tail at this point).  Also clamped into place the plate for the tail wheel at the very back.
