Erazz,

I've had a play with the resin and a coat of white paint. It has proved the technique, however, the paint highlighted a machining fault. When I did the rough cutting, I think I took too much off in one pass. This led to a flat on the bottom of the mould. Photo to follow. Not really a problem as I will make another one and this time I will use a brand new cutter (cost GBP24).

One question I want to ask you about the mould. Is it a true airfoil with a zero thickness trailing edge, or is it modified with a 0.3mm (0.012") trailing edge thickness like Tom Siler prefers?

Regards,

Martin.
