I think I'm ready to glue the motor mount on. The additional fiberglass layer went on fine. You can't really tell in the photo, but the balloon left some ridges on the inside. The motor still has enough clearance though.
I think if he move it back more the prop adapter would be rubbing on the firewallI would sand the firewall smooth with the fuselage. The spinner in the photo looks good but it should have less gap behind it.
do as you please, as long you get the lines evenHere are some pictures of the results. The mount went over the bottom by about 1.5mm. Should I sand it out and lose the circle shape, or glue some wood to the bottom and sand that to make the fuse circular?

You can make a thin "fuselage strip" following the contours of the front to fill more the gap too.I think if he move it back more the prop adapter would be rubbing on the firewall
The wings are next. I need to get the parts for spoiler construction though. I will be building both inboard panels at the same time, to save time and to be consistent. I dry fitted the ribs to the spars.

but I don't think it will make a difference if I crash it hard enough.
