Hello!

It is polyester based and it was really easy to polish.

I used 320, 400, 1500 and finally 2000 grit sand paper.

Also applied some coats of release wax.

Next week I will have some days off duty and I think that will make the first tail.

I believe that the layup will be hollow, with an external layer of carbon fiber and an internal layer of fiberglass. I want the carbon fiber to be exposed just to see how it looks. :-)

For the hinges, will use Kevlar.

Hope you enjoy!
