I've done stage 1 of making a new nose cone mould. The old one is the original and is the first mould of anything I ever made! It has a few repairs that now make it impossible to get a good paint finish ... it is not really good enough for the bladder technique (gets leaks) and it's a funny shape that's hard to clamp. So I'll make an improved version.

Andre the owners at Bandicoot have some family and insurance considerations that led them to make the decision that they can't have us visiting. I can't describe it all in detail online. But yes it's very sad. An amazing place, and it's become the place I just think of when I think about going flying. Makes me sad thinking about it.
