Hi all ,
this is my first post so here goes

heres a few photos of my latest project,
first off i downloaded and scaled up some 3 views,
next job was to make a foam plug,
once sealed it was on to the parting board,
3 coats of wax later it was time to layup the first half,once cured the second half of the plug was attached,another 3 coats of wax and then layup began again,its setting as we speak so hopefully ill have some photos of the new mold tommorow

Looking fantastic I am amazed at how tight you have managed to make the fuse in relation to the mechanics extremely well done. How do you actually get the mechanics installed is the fuse split somewhere

Yep would go with Olive Drab
