Now a general overview of the pink foam bulges under the wing roots. One side is sanded fairly well, the other yet to be filled or carved. I think I will blank off the intakes as per Matt's version. It seemed to help a bit on my Fulcrum when pulling up hard, she bleeds off less speed with these blanked.
I have blocked out and carved the underside of the bee-sting now too. Oh, it's been filled and sanded smooth all over since then!
A view from the rear - nice shape!
And now the other plastic bits - the exhaust nozzles. I know Matt built his up, but I have tried rolling 1/64th ply nozzles in the past, and they ended up pants, so I am happy to use these. Afterburners will be installed later, after glassing and spraying.
Not many tasks left here now :
- Build up cockpit interior, shape cockpit
- Fit wing-tips and make tip rocket rails
- Create and shape ailerons, prefit hinges and function test
After that its final sand then time for glass!
