I see that his chines were set into notches deeper than the chine. By that I mean that he had to fair his frames while leaving his chines (more or less) untouched. Did you do this? How deep did you set your chines into frame 2?
The depth of the notches on the forward frames were an educated guess based upon staring at the frames and realizing that the corners of the forward edge of the frame would have to be faired for the skin to lay flat. Mike 's response just prior to this beat mine into the forum but he stated it as I saw it.
I'm glad you find my blog useful. Like all information, please weigh what you see there against your own judgement and what others are doing as I too am a first time builder.
Your build is coming along fine.
