Bigger project? Any hints so we can start guessing?
No, it's way too soon to be guessing. Besides with my fickled R/C mind I can change at any time.

Wax might well do fine but Partall over it guarantees no problems.

If you've seen any of my builds, then you know that I have very little patience. So I put the mold in my warming oven( 75 degrees outside and hot in the sun!) for about an hour. Worried about it getting too hot so I brought it in and cooled it and then did it again. It is cured. I decided to trim, drill the alignment holes, and popped it off the plug. To my amazement the plug was fine and there seems to be a pretty smooth surface on the mold halves.
So now it needs washed to remove the release and wax and then I will primer it so that I can check for blemishes. All in all, I'm pretty happy with it and hope I can pull a cowl soon.
So while I was waiting on the mold to cure I pulled out of my storage the crappiest piece of 2" white foam that I have ever seen. It was left here when I bought the house. Dusty and a rough surface but since I'm short of foam and didn't feel like running to Lowes, I cut it up and glued together to make 4" wing blanks.
Good thing that I'm hot wiring it because it is butt ugly but will do the job. I have to do each wing panel in two pieces because my bow isn't quite long enough to cut it.
I have the blanks cut and just need to make an add'l rib template for the middle cut.
Maybe cutting wings tomorrow.
