outdoor rubber models

Tom, that Contestor has a very nice structure. You did an excellent covering job.
For smaller props (under 10 inches) Iíve tried using multiple stacked laminations, then sanded them down to the shape I wanted. I think you can still have a lot of fun with the smaller prop you already have and use less rubber for the initial test flights. You might want to consider making a tube for winding the rubber, just in case it breaks and damages the model.
The attached pics are not my models. They were taken at a nearby sod farm. You can see the props and the DT tail pop up.
John
