Only 27 bumps? Isn't there 2 bumps per cylinder?
That's more like 54 bumps!

With my record of about 50% scrap when I carved the ones for the SR-7, I'll be whittling a LOT of bumps! Bumpity bump, I'll have blisters on me fingers!

Might be better to make one, then vacu-form a female. Pour plaster into the mold to make a bunch of duplicates. Glue all the bump plugs to a substrate and vacu-form a bunch at one time.

I might consider vacu-formed cowls too. Wonder if Sparky or Golden Age has a dummy engine 2" in diameter? Or if I get really ambitious I could add engine detail to a cowl plug. Looking at the pics it looks like the center cowl is the same size as the outter ones? that would make it a lot easier. Two molds, the cowl and one for the bumps.
