I started covering some of the fuselage frames. I'm trying it this way for the larger coverings like this one for frame #8. I'm using a utility knife for cutting out these large pieces. For the smaller pieces like frame #11, I'm using the bandsaw and sander. I'm making them oversize a little so I can file them to the exact shape after it's glued on.

I also did some housecleaning by getting rid of a lot of scrap from the fuselage sections. I couldn't bring myself to throw out the molds I made so I'm putting them in the attic. Here's a picture of every mold I used to make the fuselage frames.
