Bienvenudo! That just might be close to a hearty welcome. Loads of good info here. Plenty of colorful personalities. Kimber may be right about us... But the voices in my head keep telling me it is the other way around.

Hey K- the green two liter bottle half ( likely Sprite, Ginger Ale or Mt. Dew) is made of PET or PETE ( Polyethylene terephthalate) a type of food grade plastic that can be heat formed to make plane cowlings. The linked video shows the process of taking a mold for whatever plane you're scratch building or repairing and then slip it inside the bottle. Apply heat uniformly to shrink it to the mold. Remove the mold and Voila! a cowling for your plane.
