Fuselage parts

I bought a 30″ Harbor Freight brake and have been using to make the .032″ channel parts for the fuselage.  I’m planning on building a 8′ brake for the longer bends, but I am kindof wishing I had got the 36″ brake for a few slightly longer parts.  The brake also doesn’t seem to bend quite far enough to make a true 90 degree bend due to spring back, so I end up having to add a wooden block after the initial bend to get it the rest of the way.

I have also cut some more larger pieces of .032″ sheet metal–the cockpit floor and the glare shield.
