These flanges are 2 layers of 9 Oz cloth over the tool coat.
It works well. The flange is firm, but still somewhat moveable.

Still have some clay to clean, and my registration pads didn't release again, but all in all not bad for a disabled guy in his basement I suppose.

Next, the lower centre section will be cast separate from the remaining two leading edge sections.

Spent some time organizing my new work area and got a good jump on the next mould section today. The rest of the basement is clear and I hope to put some work stations along the walls to support kit production, should the project ever evolve that far.

I’ll let this set up overnight and tomorrow we’ll have just the leading edge sections to go.

Removed the clay and formers.
Next it's leading edge sections.
Got a hand flipping the mould - GTG again

hmmmm - is that a light at the end of the tunnel that I see ??

Note that I've overlapped the upper and lower sections to ensure that there is a guaranteed alignment along the leading edge. If you look even closer you might notice that the inboard overlap is on the upper section while the outboard overlap is on the lower section...if you look even closer you might also notice that the flanges have draft in two planes...if you look still closer you just get bug-eyed (like me)
