Here I am using the rear deck as a jig and using some masking tap to make sure everything fits properly. I have hit a minor snag - the rudder clamp on the starboard side hits the i-beam. When I have everything set, I will glue the i-beams together and then remove from the rear deck, then glue to the deck support beams already in the hull.
Here are the six i-beams completed - I just tack glued them with some Tenax 7R and will put a bead of Testors glue on after I make sure everything fits ok. I already had a couple of instances where I had to break the joint and reglue.
