Chipping away at the upper hull

I have been doing more detail to the front panel (some of which is not installed yet, to be seen later), reinforcing the fiberglass transmission cover (front nose piece), and have been planning with cardboard and working on the upper hull some more, like the piece for the rear end.  I found a 24″ Nylon ring at the plastics place, which will work perfectly for my turret ring, as well as the basis for the structure of the turret.

Here you can see how I am doing some of the seal between the upper and lower hull, with those 1×2’s.  This one had to be cut at a precise angle to work out right:
