Building Seamaster Day 15: Fuselage Bottom + Wing Tips

On April 12th I worked on the wing and the fuselage.  I glued the bottom mid-section of the fuselage in place which involved using glue along the edges to hold it to the fuselage as well as along the front edge to hold the bottom the flat surface it butts up against in the front.  It is then clamped and held in place while it dries.

As seen in the two pictures below I glued the two balsa wing tip forms into place.  There is glue along the straight left edge of the wing tip form to adhere it to the side of the outer rib as well as on the wood pieces where it is sliding between on the front and back of the wing.  This is to ensure it is glued into place and is being held by clamps while the glue dries.
