By JAMES and DAVID O'REILLY,
The three-ply fuselage construction was chosen because the rules required profile construction, and we wanted to duplicate as many of the fuselage contours as possible within the limits imposed by the rules. Also, our wood box contained a few sheets of 1/16 "ironwood" left over from the last time we bought a kit. The core of soft six-pound 1I8-inch balsa with hard 1/16 sheet faces gives a good 'combination of strength and lightness. If you wish to keep the appearance as close to scale as possible, the engine cutouts shown on the plans are recommended. However, if strength and practical considerations are more important to you, we suggest that the portion of the fuselage above the engine be eliminated, as it is rather fragile.
