    Well here we are after about 2 hrs of sanding with 80grit. I still need to make the intake cowl

    Next step is to cover it with drywall compound and sand to final shape and then glass with 6oz

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Well this engine pod is a lot of work. I may think that Im in control...but really the model is dictating what to do every step of the way. Today I wanted to cut the slot in the pod to slip over the vert stab.. but then the model said I first have to fair in the Horizontal stabs. The morning was spent figuring out the thrust line and vert lines etc.. and cutting up an old horizontal stab from a deceased model that happens to be perfect for this build.

    This is how its been from the beginning. I just do what the model tells me too

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Looking good Trevor!
    Speaking of deceased models, what ever happened to that awesome video of your Mirage losing its wings on a high speed pass?
    I can't find it on youtube anymore...
    Cheers Eric
