Bending the longerons was basically whacking the longeron with a four-pound mallet. Then you would compare it to the template then whack it some more. Kind of a tedious process.
This is how I cut the longerons. I clamped a piece of scrap on the longeron to use as a guide for the hacksaw. I didn't want to use any power tools on this.
Here I was drilling the canopy deck to the longeron.
This how we applied the sharp downward bend and twist.
The complete longerons.
The next order of business will be (temporarily) attaching the tailcone to the fuselage and working on the forward fuselage.
