As the weather is crap I finally started the SIG Piper Cub Build. I have moved on quite well as I have built the two bottom sections of the side fuselage and both match and are strait.I will post pictures up as I go along

left and right main frame.



Right side of the main frame with optional door.



Same side but with the Ply sheeting on, this is just for strength and the only area to have it.



three of the internal sections in the fuselage.



again one of the internal frames, this one is up in the front of the cockpit.



This is just one of the side pieces going up to the fire wall.



Same piece placed in the position but not glued.



That is as far as I have got so far!! More pictures as soon as I progress into the build.

The glue I am using is a combination of three types: wood yellow glue, Two part Epoxy and as Ray said CA. OK it looks nasty when it spreads but when covered with sola- tex you will not see it.
The next thing to do is sand back the tail end to a taper in preparation for joining.But that will be later today as I need to hang around down stairs for a parcel to be delivered.

This is what I need to do next, This is not my one but a build on RC universe.

OK this is the glue.



Two sides joined with the three bulk heads.




Right hand side, you can see the door section has been cut out as I have decided to use the door to tighten up the wing bolts rather that through the small window on the middle section of the wing.


Depending on the weather tomorrow but I may have a day off from building.
