More fuselage parts

I had been concerned about laying out perfectly straight edges for the bottom of the fuselage, but then I realized I have a 12″ straight-edge in the form of left over .032″ sheet.

I used it to guide the olfa knife for about 3-4 passes.  Then since I am paranoid about having a nice, clean break on such a major part, I did several more passes for good measure.  There was plenty of room on the sides to cut out blanks for many of the Z channel pieces.  Unfortunately I keep confusing .025 and .032 parts and cutting blanks out of the wrong size aluminum.  It seems like I will still have plenty of material left over.

Here is the fuselage bottom lined up with the edge of my work table.
