Erf, it's medicine. It's got to be horrible. The important bit ( politician speaking), is you save the alcohol so rendering the patient oblivious to suffering.

SR 71 is suffering from terminal man flu.

SR71 said he has flue. In which case, would a chimney sweep be able to help?

I sanded filled and sanded got spot on then found a couple of places i had gone through the cloth, so had to lay more cloth on, while that went off i started thinking about the wing, going to do a 3 piece wing, a centre section that can be removed, but ill leave it on this will have the two inboard engines, the retracts and the two iner flaps, outer panels will each have two engines, two flaps and the aileron, going to opperate all six flaps from one central servo

With all that in mind iv made the outer tubes for the carbon wing joiners from glass. Ill load the pics later, as i have flu ???

I'm definitely following. I'm intrigued as to what you are going to do with the plug.

P.S. I've found that the hard part about posting photos on here is getting them in the right order and where you want them with respect to your text. The key is to press the Enter key a few times after your typing, then make sure you position your curser at the point you want the picture inserting - usually BELOW the last picture or text. If you have no space below the last picture, you need to click in the white space just to the right of the last picture and hit Enter. Then your new picture will be added below it. Far easier to do than to explain.

Plug is looking very nice now. It's what you do next that is intriguing me.

2 part female plug, split lengthwise down the vertical axis - followed by a 2 part fuselage?

Or do you go straight to the finished fuselage then cut it into 2 parts to release it from the plug and worry about the external finish later?

You and me to Gary.

I was thinking about where this was headed,

I then thought back to the group I worked with making canoes and then when I moulded fuz.wp_20200124_09_36_30_pro.jpg

My bits and pieces as a hoarder.

When we made a plug for canoes, made the plug with a separation line built in, which was along the hull to deck. Although I seem to remember that the Trylon booklet, wrote about building a flange on the intended separation line, which was to be sealed with plasterzine, The knowledgeable members knew it was a lot easier to separate the top of the plug from the bottom and construct the flange on the two bits.

You can see that I also did the same later where I started moulding my own glider bodies.

It is some 40 years ago since I last did anything, A lot has changed in how people do things. I still suspect it is a two part mould that will be made. The alternative approach would have been simpler using the lost mandrel construction.

Either way, it is a lot of work for a one, lost mandrel being the least.

What ever, I watch and learn.

Great work thus far SR71. Been watching, silently. Loved the fullsize since I was a sprog. Fascinated in how you are going to make the model and how it performs when finished.
