When you start making them, does the internal structure get molded in?

I guess what I'm asking is: When you actually produce a fuselage, is the internal wooden structure added later or is it put in place while it's laid up.
By the way, that plug is gorgeous!

It comes out of the mold like the CARF fuselage - you can add whatever you like later :-)

You all do a great job on these. As much as I see you work I would think more people would be videoing their flights. I love seeing Gee Bee planes fly.
