The return of the Nacelles…

Today I spent time on the PC in Photoshop and made new formers based on the nacelle profile. These formers are tailor made for my foam cutting. Then i printed them out, transfered them to model box cardboard(it works the best, no corrugation) and glued them down with 3M 77.

Next I cut them out as best I can with scissors and sand the rest with sand paper to the exact edge of the template. I use 80 grit to hog them down and then 220 to smooth the edge further.

Next is to coat th edges with thin CA. This hardens the edge so the hot wire can travel smoothly over it without hanging up. After the CA sets I go back over it until the edge is super smooth.

I’m ready to cut foam next. Stay tuned.
