I used the very old mould to make one more solid plug .
Got some new 3 view drawings off the internet .
Nose was to short by 25 mm . So I simple cut through the fuselage and extended it.
I Also dropped the front part of the fuselage down a degree or 2 .
A new fully symmetrical fin was also built

The old kit

Hope I can keep this interesting .
Maarten Scale wingspan would be 1.2 m 48 inches
But made most of them 1.4 m for that little bit more wing area and aspect ratio .
Fuselage nose extension and new mre scale looking canopy .

Canopy frame layed up on the fuselage with several layers of glass . Waxed the tape too .
Trimmed level with the fuselage so that the foam canopy can be sanded exactly to the edge for a perfect fit .

I'm not going overboard or very scale , just adding the most basic lines which are mostly visible on the full scale plane .
Not that much work really , considering one only does this once .

You must be very confident with your release agent Afcan! ..... I'd be scared stiff wondering whether the plug will come out with all those nooks and crannies ........ detail!
