Tool Validation Layup

...just some quick pics today
All looks good so far - I've just finished joining the two main fuselage sections here and I'm about to join and attach the tail sections.
This part will validate the tool function and provide a sample part for sectioning. The sections will provide templates for formers, radio tray etc..
I removed the bottom mould sections freely by hand to provide access for the joining operation. I used 3 coats of 100% carnauba wax as a parting medium. Detail transfer looks good, and as you can see there was very little flash. To colour the epoxy I used very cheap metallic flake acrylic paint. I expect to have a complete fuselage shell by mid week. I had a few minutes to post some pics and thought I would take the opportunity. Stay tuned - more to come.
