so im down to my final sanding before i cover it with a coat of glass,
I spent a day in frustration trying to build the lower-tail-fin,out of insulation, and gave up,
i found some heavy cardboard and spent a few hrs, scribing it into the compounded curves,
a few choice swear words, and a double- captin-morgan, and i got it, fit, doubled up the lower part of the fin with thin strips, and epoxyed the edges,
then spread it out over the rear and boom, held it down with some elastics and got it glued,
I used a dowel, for my boom-drive-shaft-cover, filled it with a few coats of mud and sanded it to shape,
i built the fuel-tank as it shows on the 72/scale model i have but didnt like the looks of it, did some pic-peeking and went with the rounded-flat one,
my nose is a little out of joint, but im tired of fiddling with the mud, and figure itl be easier to get it right with some good old bondo,
I know im NOT a scale-modeler, like alot of you folks on here, this is my first ever undertaking of a do-it-myself,fuselage,
im shure ive made tons of mistakes, and probably will make alot more,
but dam its FUN, and giving me something to work on during the day,
and as always,
opinions are welcome,

Can't wait to see this bad boy in glass! Keep the pics coming and never let the Captain Morgan run out... You'll get there

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!
