started on the noze cone, I should have built the hotwire foam cutter a looong time ago. This only took about 2 hrs to cut. Started the sanding on the noze. Dont worry its not done yet Sam... I just got bored and started drawing windows on it (they look toatally wrong )

I'm a complete dumb while making the cardboard circle template I forgot to make adjustments to accondomenate the 3mm depron skin now its 3mm short on all sides.... Im going to name it spackes goodthing I have plenty of it! Oh well, If I crash it I'll know what to do diffrently on V2

obviously it's not perfect, but it's a start at least. if you want to change it, just round the edges, etc, but it's a good outline for you to follow.
