Cowling cut, almost ready to mount prop!

I carefully cut out the slots between the faux-radial engine! Whew. A fair bit of precision work to look nice. I plan to use some graphite-epoxy to strengthen the engine spars and radial cylinders a bit more. I smoothed the job with a polishing wheel and my dremmel to remove any burrs and to remove sharp edges. Looks great!

Now, to paint the interior flat black and then epoxy into the cowl. I plan to paint yellow tips on the prop, then mount it. Getting there every day!
