Plans: 1. Finish coping 9 tubes for forward fuselage. Status: Complete. I reconfigured the drill press jig to make tubes of identical length. The new set-up worked pretty well. Cutting the tubes went uneventfully.
2. Join fuselage sides. Status: I mounted the fuselage sides to the work bench and placed the tubes in their final location. Squaring up the assembly is in process. I want to be sure it is aligned in all axis before riveting.
