All the molds were cnc cut from a tooling board. I'm not sure exactly what type they used. Even though the first plane had problems the quality of the finish was great. Should be a fun plane when it happens.

Is this the same as the Foam version?

My dream was always to have a JW wing done in Composite and use a traditional EPP fuse (tape/gooped of course )

Let me know when and where to sign up guys Even if i can't fly it here, i want to fulfill a dream to own this baby!

I was hoping for that too but from the looks of it, it won't be compatible. I also wanted it in glass only, no cf.
I was thinking of getting Bruce T. to turn an aluminum fuse

Yes, its been a long road to get the dub into production. I email the fabricator every week, last news is they were waiting for a resin that I have never heard of.

They have been very apologetic, and continue to say the wait will be worth it.

I will post updates in this thread as I get them.

2011-2012 season

The DS'ing season of 2011-2012 is kicking off now.
Is there any update on the new molded JW's
I have found what I beleive to be 2 new possibly WR ridges
I would love to have a new dub to test these places out
I guess I should get off my lazy butt and get to building one of the JW's I have laying around the shop.
