Long Strafer nose, Revision A

B-25H & J solid nose forming

The original noses I made out of 1/16" styrene tended to be a bit thin at the business end where the eight .50's will be mounted. I opted to try a different material. I tried both 1/8" styrene as well as 3/32" black ABS.

Out of 2 attempts I managed to make 1 good 1/8" styrene part. I had better luck with the 3/32" ABS. I tried 4 times and came away with 3 good parts. The 1 failed attempt was operator error. Here are a couple of pictures.
