Hi Roo, As I mentioned in our Facebook discussions, Why fly your plugs when with a little more work (at the rate that you work) you could make a mold from it then make as many as you wish. Then a disaster become just a mishap and you may also sell a few. ;)

So my suggestion for what its worth is to repair the fox fus to a plug value only. I.E. don't worry about added weight and make it strong to help its release from the mold. Use the rest of your saved time to make a quality mold.Then applying any alterations needed having learnt from the first model make a superb second and subsequent models.

Im sure Cliff Evens will put his name down for one maybe two. :roll:

Thanks terry for your suggestions. But I still do not know if I am rebuilding it yet. I am using some old epoxy up that I have. . I have outher gliders like my pt asw 20 and a 1/3 scale ash 31 to finish first. The Fox if I carry on will be done in between jobs. And when there spare time so not in a hurry to do.
