I embedded two thin carbon rods in the top of each pylon extending into the fuse about 4 inches, then encased the pylon in ply using the templates, except I added a top piece as well. I used 1/64 ply instead if 1/16, then coated the entire thing in epoxy. Its strong enough now you can grab it by the pylon and wave it around . If it breaks here before it breaks any other place I will be surprised.

Now what kind of paint sticks to epoxy? I need to paint the pylons, they stick out like crazy covered in ply.
