scratch built 7m ASH 31

Post by roo Hawkins » 10 Jul 2018, 23:14

Hi, I started this about 6 weeks ago but it has been on hold. I am not planing to do one of my fast builds as I have a PT ASW 20 to do as well. I needed to start this so I can get over the fox build. I built a 5m ASH 31 about 3 years ago. It was OK but I wish I had made it in 1/3 scale. The fuz foam plug has been shaped but not filled and sanded plus the blue foam wing cores have been cut. I will post some more when more has been done.

Why the blue foam for the wings Roo? Is it just the obvious thing that it is stronger than EPS??

It makes a more accurate cut plus it is stronger
