Granted that was for a plug, but be carefull if you glass over it!!!.
CoolerByTheLake, Wow! I am glad I mentioned it. I am currently in the planning stages of a twin 90mm M21 (SR 71) that I plan to use a foam plug for molding FG skins. Thank you for the heads up. I have used it allot but have never glassed over it. Thanks agian Greg (Lt599)

Humbertomelo, I really like the paint on your Mirage!! It is turning out great Greg

Slaanesh,

I did a lot of tests with esc, edf, battery, all working together... after a several runs if all ok, then i install inside the jet and seal the fuselage. For me, after sealing the fuselage there is no reason to access the edf, if i have to access the edf then will cut a square area in actual edf position.

Fiberglass is easy man. Fiberglass cloth. Then cover it with minwax polycrylic or epoxy

In my jets, i bend the depron first with a hot air gun then apply one fiberglass cloth with epoxi resin, simple as 2+2.

I like your intake design. The half intake lip. Do you do the same thing for top of the edf or just leave it like in the pictures. Also is it sealed to each side of the fuesalage or is there a gap where air can pass by the fan
