Jonathan....

Didn’t see or notice in your video, is the fuse painted outside the molds? Can you see the seam running along the center?

Nice looking glider and fun project....

Great Question. I'm not sure of the answer but I will take a closer look when I start into it. After the unboxing I had to put it back in the box and wrap up the Diamond and working on some other little repairs now. i'll check it out in more detail.
