Cowl Vents


I talked about my 3D-printed cowl vents here:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...4#post15354081

Here they are, coming together for FF.

Brass tubing, resin flanges, and turned adapters, top and bottom.
The offset screw in the base will provide anti-rotation, while the bottom of the tube will go into a shallow bore in the deck. Pretty solid.

One done, need to make up SEVEN more...

To make the blue-foam moulds, did you heat up the brass masters and let them melt into the foam?

That's blue silicone mold rubber, poured around the masters.
