Slowly proceeding with the building!

Making the canopy plug for vacuum forming.
The plug now needs just a light coat of filler and smoothed with 600 grit sandpaper.
The plug is positioned on the keel.... Actually it looks more like a boat than a fuselage! I also started building the wing. The spar is 1/16 x ¼ basswood stiffened with 1/64 x1/8 unidirectional carbon fiber strip.
The following are not images related with the model but just something I'd like to shear with you. This is a sample piece of 1/8 poplar plywood laser cut that my daughter Luisa gave to me.
It's amazing how it bends!
It should be good even for replacing rudder hinges!
Luisa used the same laser cut patterns on a 1/20 poplar plywood to make an hand-bag for her sister Ilaria as a Xmas gift.
