They don't build them like that anymore!

The model looks amazing, can't wait for the maiden! I need to get back on with mine after a fun filled weekend spent shouting at kids

I notice you carved the nose cone and other bits out of blue foam I need to get some. What thickness would you recommend?

Most stuff (like the nose cone) would come out of 2" foam Adam
