Yea, long time no see.

I did think about you last Feb when I was in Caloundra ~ 375 KM from you.
Sorry we missed you , but it was just a bit too far at that time.

I hope you were not HIT by those nasty Floods like Townsville.

Regardless, Tony showed me a terrific time in Perth.
And Graham ( Whiskers) and wife were the most gracious of hosts for our time in and around
Little Mountain.

Oh well, maybe next time around, eh.

You must still have a hanger full of neat models all Calling to you !
Time to charge those Paks and get crakin' !

Yes thrust tubes would be the go with 3D Printing .. much easier to do in plastic than in foam

Biggest problem as I see it is .. if you hit the deck a bit hard the plastic just explodes .. not quite as resilient as foam

Well, um yeah ...

Adding to Tony's point ...

A plastic sheet , like the cheap/free thin , clear, plastic , Laser jet printable ,
used for Overhead projector presentations taped to the Inlet and outlet specifications
make a nice lightweight s m o o t h exhaust tube alternative.

versus a 4 hour to 3D Print, brittle and not so smooth version.

I am all for picking your battles.
3DPrinting for the sake of 3DPrinting is not always the best choice IMHO

Besides, 3DP is about "Showing Off" and buried exhaust tube is HARD to Show off !
