In the fuselage there are channels that bring the air directly to the turbine.
In the front fuselage part, the channels have a mild curve, so they have to be made of balsa strips that are placed next to each other.
I used CA glue for this process.










The channel in the rear fuselage section was a bit easier to make, because the shape is correct, only in one place it has a slight changeover.
To make balsa easier to bend I used hot water and I used a white carpentry adhesive for gluing.










When you assemble the fuselage you can see how long the suction channel is.
