Now on to building. Inside the nacelles, some fiberglass has to be added to reinforce where they transition from mounting to where the fans get installed.On the original model these were dummy fans so they weren't required to support any weight.
The next picture is of the plastic inlet rings I had made from a "tool" I created out of bondo.
And then a sketch of how the fans are attached to the nacelle.
