Just in case no-one has mentioned this to you yet, the orientation of the rear fuselage short stringers (RF-LGN-902) in the instruction manual (2014/02/19 revision) is incorrect - the left and right stringers need to be swapped with each other to get the correct orientation to enable the rear fuselage to mate with the center fuselage.

See my blog http://www.gordlsling4.com/2016/03/cont ... elage.html that has a photo that indicates the incorrect positioning.
