Cliff, thanks for the very kind offer but I feel I would need to glass anyway with the plug being blue foam - at least two layers.

I will look at the Vac-cast stuff for the next one and think about using fibre board next time. Bad stuff though.......even outside.

Which particular resin do you use?

The canopy plugs are milled using MDF for the canopy shape then, 3 coats of the resin: https://www.easycomposites.co.uk/#!/res ... resin.html

Thanks Cliff - I get my epoxy and cloth from them.

Strewth, I see what you mean about pricey.

As covering progresses (slowly - I know, much to everyone's surprise........................) the sensibility of leaving this the way it is haunts me a little. Very vulnerable - Scale Police notwithstanding of course.

Not really sure of its purpose - not an aerodynamic balance surely and do they have mass balances on rudders?

Robbie that is a mass balance you have there. I suggest you leave it in or you could inflict the wrath of the SCALE POLICE. Regards John.

Probably will John - until the first (and last) time it gets broken. Anyway, I think the SCALE POLICE (see capitals this time) are off on a jollie at the minute?
