As a side project. Prior to doing the plug and now the mold I had been playing with how to build a single piece detailed and scale cowl. The first cowl mold and part pull was a disaster. It was the first time that I had made a resin mold in thirty years. The results proved how bad I was at it. The first part is the ... well I think it obvious?. The rest are just a sampling of the trial and error and how I finally got a nice product.

I have decided to make an entirely new cowl and engine plug using a larger radius to make it more scale and easier to make parts. The new resin mold will now incorporate the entire nose ring with a flat lip at the back so that the engine can be just glued to it.
