Solid but still light enough LOL!

Here is the plug I made for the 6" boom extention.
I made a 4 way spine and 1/4 round formers from 3mm balsa, planked it with 1,5 mm balsa and then filled and sanded the the shape I needed.

Put on some PVA to help get it out the glass and did a 2 layup of 63gr glass followed by a single layup of very fine cloth to help reduce the filler needed to smooth it out.

When cured I will fill.sand and prime ready for instenaltion on the rear boom. Luckly this shape could not be easier to make :-D
