Next up is building the cowl. That process begins by building the sub-structure. The sub-structure is simply two balsa rings and four strips of 1/16x1/8 balsa. Once the sub-structure is complete two layers of 1/32 balsa sheeting are wrapped around the round structure. The nose ring is made from two laminations of 1/8 balsa. The nose ring is shaped using a Dremel tool. After shaping the balsa disk that makes up the back of the nose ring is opened up for the motor. More on that later.

Next on the to do list is setting up the equipment installation in the fuselage.
