Ideally, the two Center Sections are bolted together with a set of spacers matched to the wing spar dimension plus about .005". The spacers hold alignment both in width and hole alignment. They stay there till the center section is completely riveted. If it's an "A" model, you also have two gear towers that may not bolt into place.
Yes, this is a QB tail dragger fuselage.

If I had to do it over again, I WOULD NOT buy a QB.
I could easily go on a rant about all the problems I've had with QBs but I'll leave that for later
