I sold my original fan assy to Par 18 to help him get his Falcon into the air because he was short on time.

Of course this left my Falcon without a fan. I've been thinking about doing a glass nacelle for the 4.5" fan since it is working so well on the Falcon.

I was in Walmart the other day and there it was sitting on the shelf with a $10
price tag. It was a ready-made 4.5" fan nacelle plug. I never knew WM carried those. It was a little weird that they made it out of glass. Real glass. But for $10 I figured I'd just have to be careful with it.

Within a few hours I had made a female mold with good enough quality for me to make a couple of halfs and the next night I pulled two nacelle halfs from my mold an had them spliced together.

For some reason my camera isn't spaking to my PC right now so I don't have pics for you but I'll get that sorted out. It's gonna be slick. It's the final touch my Falcon needs to look really "finished".
