Progress still…

Being stuck in after effects hell for days now working on this movie hasn’t allowed me much time for my build.

Today I managed a whole hour and a half and started framing up the canopy form. The idea here is to make the form before I glass the fuse. The form will match the size of the unglassed fuselage. Once I pull the canopy on the vacuum form machine it will match the fuse once glassed because I’ll being pulling over the form 030 PETG,.

Hard to put into exact words but I have done this before and it works.

The form here will have blue foam added tomorrow and the foam will be sanded to form, glassed, putty, primer and then I’ll make a mold. From the mold I’ll make a Ultracal 30 casting to vacuum form over.

Got my epoxy today. “The stuff dreams are made of”
