Fuselage fabric on the belly

 The landing gear was removed yesterday. It comes apart nicely as one assembly.  I felt like I was rolling around an elaborate wheel barrow!

We are using Poly Fiber 3.16 Medium weight fabric.  The edges were glued with Poly Tack...

 Shrunk to 250/325 degrees.  Also, the gear fitting holes were cut out and glued to the wire edges.

Then the side fabric was cut to the rough shape before it got too late and I called it a night.

More soon....Enjoy
