Chinook fuselage

Got the first body out of the mold yesterday. Weighs 5 lbs, or 2268 grams. Bulkheads and structure to be added. It's a beast!

Fuselage materials

Used epoxy resin with (2) layers of 6 oz. cloth. Looks to have plenty of rigidity. Plywood bulkheads will be installed to support the mechanics.
