I wasn't happy with the connector piece I used to hold the bottom of frame #2 in the right shape and I realized that the bracing structure on the inside of the frame would hold the frame in shape anyway. I cut the extra length off the bottom ends to the right measurement and my connector came right off. I sized all the braces and fit them into frame #2 and glued it together. I think when I prep this frame for assembly with the rest of the fuselage, the bar across the middle of the frame gets cut in the middle, resulting in the shape losing its rigidity, but I don't need to do that for a long time. This bracing will hold the frame in shape until then.
Today, I also joined frame #7 together. Next I'll work on adding the bracing structure to this frame.
