Tail fin and glass

Hi There,
A bit side tracked with the garden etc but Spring is Sprung.
Anyways, I draped and cut some 163gr cloth and wet it out , I am using all the old bits and pieces on the plug so the initial epoxy was a bit of 6300 infusion epoxy and a 30 minute harderner, a stint out in the sun and it hardened in about 2 hrs, then did the top and rather pleased that it was done with only one seam line down the sides.
Again a stint in the warm and finally 2 pieces onto the tail fin and the whole fuselage is glassed, this already makes it more robust and rigid, to handle.
regards
Mike
