Lokeed T33 all composite

Hello chaps, I'd like to share this new project.
As per subject it's a T33, the ship will be all composite and sandwich construction starting from plug then molds and finally the plane.
Here are some pictures of the plug work and detailing .
The model will be powered with EDF 120mm 10s units or turbine; It's 1:6.7 scale, with an estimated weight of 4 Kg.

The T-Bird is one of my faves. Looks like you'll be showing some techniques we don't see very often on this forum. Are the photos in your post of the plug? What's it made of? Lots of nice detail...

You'd get a lot more followers if you posted this in the EDF scratch built forum. The plugs look awesome...can't wait to see how it turns out!

To Steve: yes this is the plug and it comes from my old wood version
