I cut it with a disc grinder to avoid the edges getting raffled,It stinks then but hey !I do have clean edges !!

Hi Martyn ,thanks for following.

The casting material is in fact ''ply'' with both sides laminated with some sort of shiny layer. It's thesame as concrete casting material but not so thick.I use the 4 mm version.It is sold in plates 1.25M X2.5M and relatively cheap. I think it's 20€ per plate.

The great advantage is that when you don't sand it , the epoxy dusn't stick to it !!and you can polish it like a mirror.

Hope this helps ??

Greetz , Dirk

Time to prepare the hatch and the opening in the fuse for later moulding by glueing some casting material arround the edgesuser_scoped_temp_data_media_upload2_1572032189611.jpg

Everything ready for the cut ?20191022_222940.jpg

25/10/2019 23:24:22

Finally i'm glueing a piece of mdf board on the foam to strenghten the combo20191022_221733.jpg

20191021_222148.jpgBefore i cut it out ,i'm reinforcing the hatch itself with some foam not to disturb the form.Before i glue the foam on the hatch i'm taping it so that i can remove it with ease.20191021_215923.jpg

I'm letting this dry out for some day's for easyer sanding.

Meanwhile i'm starting on the motor-hatch. First get the right position sorted ,not easy when you don't know the right plae for the motor....20191019_234302.jpg

You might have noticed that i have only one elevator plug :That's because left and right are identical. I just have to make two parts out of the mould. That's for later....

After filling some defaults and sanding ,the plug is ready for glassing.No servo hatch here ,it's going to be mounted inside the rudder on the first rib.20191019_225634.jpg

25/10/2019 23:05:31

Also cutted the moving part from the rudder.I'm not sure how to call them in case of a V-tail...Rudders ? Elevators ? ruddervators ?20191018_230740.jpg

25/10/2019 23:01:07

20191015_232122.jpg20191015_213118.jpgThe position of the rudder is then marked on the fuse to place the anti-rotation pins20191015_212516.jpg
