I screwed up!

Well Mr. Old school screwed up on the nacelles. Something went wrong with the wood and they warped so badly I’m starting over.

This time I’m going to wire cut foam nacelles like I should have in the first place and then glass the foam. Nice thing is I’ll do it in sections and cut right n the depressions on the inside and the slot for the pylon.

In addition I’ll be making the front caps over. After re doing the end caps today I plan to make them entirely out of styrene. Most of the new end caps are. The balsa shape is skinned in Plasticstruct and the new end part is all styrene. I had so much better control to make them perfectly round.

Can’t fins styrene thick enough. Stake it! Works great.

More tomorrow. Hey Now you’ll learn how to wire cut foam.

Steve

Nice and clean.
