Buscaylet-de Monge 7/5, no fuselage as such, just a thicker piece of wing.
It’s hard to really appreciate just how big the C-5 Galaxy is so here is the fuselage of one right next to the fuselage of a C-130.
What an empty fuselage looks like.
The Cierva W.9 was a British 1940s experimental helicopter with a three-blade tilting-hub controlled main rotor, and torque compensation achieved using a jet of air discharged from the rear port side of the fuselage. reddit.com/gallery/lb0h4m
TIL Sylvester Stallone commissioned Arkansas Knife Maker, Jimmy Lile, to create a knife for Rambo. Lile, instructed not to make a prop, responded with a blade that could "Cut through the fuselage of an aircraft" and a unique hollow handle to store survival necessities. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim…

In 1994 a team went to Greenland to repair and return a U.S. B-29 that had been abandoned there since 1947. The repairs were completed, and the plane prepared to take off. As it was taxiing a fire broke out inside the rear fuselage and quickly engulfed the whole aircraft. Story in comments...

BN GP9 1840 (ex-NP214) with a Boeing 727. This was when these loads were shipped as a front and rear section on two flatcars. Since that time the fuselages are shipped as a single assembly on 89' specially equipped flats with an accompanying idler car. Taken at Stacey Street Yard in Seattle, 1985.
An underside view of a Fighter Squadron 41 (VF-41) F-14A Tomcat aircraft on a combat air patrol (CAP) during Operation Desert Storm. The aircraft is carrying four AIM-7 Sparrow missiles under its fuselage and two AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles on each wing pylon. Feb 26, 1991
Here you can see water from the lavatories leaving the plane via heated drains (below and behind the fuselage). Due to the temperature, speed and dryness of the air, the water disappears almost immediately. v.redd.it/2yg0lcs75jd61
Day 2 of printing. Got a few of the electronics for it and finished the fuselage. The next step is to take a big gamble and print 4 wing pieces at once (I know it’s a bad idea but I might as well try) reddit.com/gallery/leh4xi

Airplane fuselage (728x518)
Crews working on USN Douglas SBD Dauntless in the USS enterprise hangar, you can see other planes fuselages hanging from the ceiling kept there as reserve, a common practice in the USN pre-war carrier force. Circa 1941. (900x784)
Westland Whirlwind: The massive nacelles on each wing suggest light bomber, but the oh-so-skinny fuselage with four mighty Hispano cannon in the nose say otherwise.
Why dont airplanes use fuselage to generate lift
In all commercial airlines, the majority of lift is generated by wings. So Why fuselage isn't designed like an airfoil? A little curvature to the roof of the fuselage could contribute to the total lift of the aircraft. This would add some drag but the benefits might outweigh the negatives. This might decrease the ratio of fuel used per tonnes of weight.
I'm planning to do a proper CFD analysis to verify this but before that just wanted to know if there are any particular reasons as to why aircraft engineers haven't implemented such a design yet.
Please ask if you need further clarification on the idea
Edit: I am well aware of the complication of controlling unstable designs like lifting bodies and BWB. I have a more simple ambition of only adding a small curve to the roof of the fuselage as i mentioned earlier. I'll be posting CFD results later in the time(where they are ready!!) to actually see how much increase in lift are we achieving
My friend made a preliminary CAD and i've attached some rendered images below
Notice the little curve added on the roof
Two Fokker E-III models I built five years apart. What you can't see is that the first time, I botched the fuselage and had to tear it apart and redo it, twice. It was my first Dumas kit. I was used to the easier Guillow's fuselage construction. The first one is also pre-airbrush. reddit.com/gallery/lbckeh

[WIP] [MLIB] Tamiya 1/32 Mustang. One last shot of my painstakingly painted cockpit before the fuselage halves go together and most of this effort is hidden by the pilot. I hope Lt. Col. Meyer appreciates it.

I hear a rattling sound ...some one go kick the fuselage, that aught to get it going 🐕🚀🌙
Straight line fuselage
Is there a trick to tape masking around the fuselage of an aircraft to get a straight line? When I wrap the tape around I have to kinda deform the tape to keep it straight.
Edit: Propeller noses too?

Republic XF-12 Rainbow. Each engine nacelle was as long as a P-47, and the fuselage was perfectly circular in cross section. To me, the only thing that makes it stand out as obviously 1940s is that tall, straight vertical stabilizer.
