Starting on the fuselage

Started cutting sheet metal parts for the fuselage.  Here are the sides of the forward fuselage.  I ended up using a nibbler to cut the holes.

I used an Olfa P800 laminate cutter to score the cut lines.  I was able to snap the parts out right on the lines.

Here is a form block I made.

On top are the parts I formed with the form block and underneath are a few parts I cut out along with some scrap I practiced using the hole cutter on with a hand drill.  I decided not to try this on the fuselage sides and ended up using the slower and safer nibbler method.
