Quick update.

Progress is slow, but it's starting to look like a Starfire!! To get the wing and stab fillets just perfect was quite a chore. It was a lot of fun trying to get 5 seperate axis all at 0 degress at the same time. But I got them .

Just a quick pic or three It's still pretty rough, but after all, it's only the plug. Next, I need to install tail fillet, cut out hatch and canopy area, and cut out intake areas.

Tail to be glassed on after the 2 halfs are separated from plug and glassed back together. Along way to go yet, but at least it's starting to look like a Starfire!!

Note: For those of you blowing up the pics, the "specs" on the foam blocks are from hard foam insulation. It's not your eyes!!!

Your project looks great. I would have done the exact same thing with a set of ducting and no plane . Question though, what are you using for a sandable filler? I am working on converting a big foam target drone and have a lot of dings and dents and gaps to fill. Thanks!
