RE: Fuselage building idea

Do you have a drawing?
There was an article, many moons ago about building a fuselage just that way. I believe they built it in halves? Maybe someone remembers the article. You do have to have structure inside this fuselage. Models do take a beating.
Also, you may want to re-thing turning the fuselage on a lathe. When your done, you'll have a fuselage that looks like it was turned on a lathe. [sm=bananahead.gif]
Eliptical fuselages look much better when thinner on the sides.
Certainly traditional building methods, that have been proven, will work best. Nice to be creative also.
