Thanks Troy!

I have done the plug following what you said.

It is now finished and waxed.

I applied 5 coats of wax. I believe it is enough, because I will use PVA also.

Now will start working on the flanges.

My work schedule for February has only 40 hours of flight and I think that will be able to finish the mold.
