1/6 scale Stuka

Hello, Here is the electric 1/6 scale Ju87 Stuka I am working on. It is a scaled up Fiddlers Green paper model. It is made of cardboard covered with fiberglass cloth. The canopy is temporary, made of paper, I will vaccuform the permanent canopy. The wing is filled with expandable foam. It is strong and fairly light. Once it is finished, I am going to make a mold from it so I can cast the fuselage and wing in foam. I will sell them for people to make their own Stukas, since no companies make them. I plan on doing the same with other planes, they only take about a week to build.

Enjoy,
Ed

That's the next frontier I'd like to cross. Doing glass mold work.
Post the glass pieces after you mold them.
