Cowling

This could take a while, itís almost 44 degrees Celsius (111 Fahrenheit) in my workshop, which limits my endurance.

Plan A was to make an armature with a balsa skin, however the compound curves made this a less than ideal approach.

Plan B is to make a plug and use this to produce a fibreglass cowling. This required recutting the nose disc as the first one was sized to allow for the thickness of the skin.
