I think it was obvious from the first launch and nose in - that single thickness 6mm is not enough for the nose length to resist breaking.

Repair has now been effected ... pieces tacked back in place with UHU Por, and nose 'reconnected'.

To strengthen and try to avoid such weakness - I then took 6mm and glued second thickness to the horizontal fuselage strips either side from nose back to that first CF rod. While the PU glue was setting - I had wood battens clamped to hold all straight and the doubling depron in place. The PU when it sets is stiff but light ... adding to the strength.
