YES!!! I think it is the investment of time and energy that builds the excitement and the neeeed to produce parts for the group build adds to the pressure of having a nice mold to produce these parts. vacation is over and heading back to earth today!

Wifey said go check out the mold sooooooo

I did!! After unpacking from our trip of course.
It turned out pretty clean and crisp!
I will finish tuning and waxing a few times and some PVA and Monday after work it gets some resin and glass thrown in there! after I make some templates for the glass of course.

From the looks it should produce and Very nice part And I will have two holes in the mold to work the seam through. The tail will get splooog and no seam . The layup will be 6oz and a 10 oz in the first one just to check weight and strength. Naked with no primer to see where I really need to focus to get it sweet.
Cigar and a Scott Brian! Cheers
