My buddy and I found a few more imperfections that couldn't be ignored so more shaping had to be done. The fwd edge of the wing/fuselage junction was far too sharp so I'm in the process of reshaping.

Its going pretty well so far. I have the cloth on the fuselage but it's so cold here that I cant mix resin. I'm in the process of making a tent for my heater, I hope I can get the air temp to 70 or higher.

Great idea on the tent....i have put down garage rubber flooring mats in my bonus room in the house to continue making Draken fuses. A bit crowded but doable.

Yeah in the house is NOT an option in my case lol. My garage temperature has been fluctuating between mid 40s and low 50s.

The weather finally warmed up enough to get some work done. My heat tent is working well so my dad and I laid the first layer of glass today! Its consistently in the low 50's in the shop, however the tent temperature is a nice 75.

I've had decent weather to get some glassing done. Both the fwd and aft fuselage sections have the first layer complete!
