Thats some beautiful curves Lockey. Hk foam......well you know my thoughts.... being positive --- very limited uses.

Depron is the best stuff... the more you roll it , the better results you get.
Love the little spring that left in your roll,. Im workimg on a magnet-less hatch for round fuselages.
Will post my results....
The Pittbull is nearly ready for a maiden. Then it's on to this beauty!!

Is that bit tricky due to the 'm' shape which then blends into a round at the front? I guess the options would be to split it into more parts or just get artistic with the old sanding block.

It looks fine to me though!

Yup, pretty good representation considering you aren't doing fiberglass, and molds or carving out of blocks of foam! I bet it is gonna fly great! Stick a big old motor up its arse and give it 4s

Maybe in 2 parts like this Adam .. would give more definition to the belly pan

Maybe if you make 2 V-cut like this to help the creases and glue them before rolling the 3 parts. You will have to guess the angle of the Vcuts but it shouldn't be too hard.
