BUT the balsa bucks were ruined while getting them out of the female plaster reverses.
Thought so, but how did you overcome the grain of the balsa?

60 in 3.5 hours! Wow, that's quite a feat! With the good quality of this canopy, that's awesome.

I'm almost ready to lay down the paint, the mask is almost dry.
