Nice catch, I forgot about the use of that tool for the fuselage build.

I am also considering a SB fuselage and QB wings. I know times vary with all builders, but would someone have a rough range for number of hours to build SB fuselage?

Thanks from a first time poster.

Fuselage took me 336.6 hours.

(First time builder but I guess by the time I did the fuselage I was pretty comfortable with all ways of construction)

Took me 440.5 hours to do the fuselage. Applied water-based epoxy two-part primer to all interior surfaces.



*FTE-full time equivalent (8 hour, 5 days a week)

Examples of mostly fuselage parts following priming, from an uninteresting series of posts on priming at http://rv-14a.blogspot.com/search/label/Priming
