Thank you for the share sky9pilot!

I started doing this about half a dozen models ago after getting a major banana on the first attempt at my Hermiptere. Since then I've been using this approach. Eventually I want to get off my duff and design a fully adjustable one.

The advantage to using the foam is once the model is done, a little trimming and you have a cradle for storage or transport.

Dan Snow on HPA was build a nice sports model and he builds a foamboard jig for his fuselage construction to avoid those bananas we've all experienced.  So as they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words"!

Thanks Dan for a great tool for building fuselages.
