Nacelle Work

My plan is to be able to remove both top and bottom of nacelles. The front ply ring behind the spinner is split, and attaches to the front of the rail of the engine mount. There are small tabs which hold each half of the ring together, thus holding the nacelle together in front. The top will have a small screw into ply block in top of wing. The aft portion of the nacelle will have tiny screws attaching to rear portion of wing.

I took 1/2" balsa sheets and glued together blocks. Then lots of sanding to shape into something resembling nacelles.
