I would like to go with 90% FSA cones that extend about just an inch past the t.e. of the nacelle. Paint the cones black and adhere them to the back of the fans. I would try and make them look like this but with wider exhausts for the 90% FSA.

As the outlet cones are adjustable, I was able to "aim" the thrust line through the balance point. This completely eliminates any pitch change when varying the throttle.

+1, I see the importance of the adjustability.

I used silicone to mount the fans and the ducts. These thrust tubes provide for 90% FSA.

Man, you are a wizard with the wood working! Nice work!

You might get to test your thrust tubes before I do so I would like to know how it works out in flight. Best of luck.
