Geoff has finished glassing the fuse and taken the peel ply off, I suggested a 'sand coat' of epoxy and easy sand additive in places to help define the final shape and fair the lines.

The Orlik did not have faired in joins between the ply sheeting on the fuz. It has pronounced "flats" at each panel location especially around the nose area. To keep it scale you need to replicate this and not "fair" it in.
Do a google search for Orlik and look at the pictures of the full size !!?

Thats less work for Geoff then! Just as a matter of interest John, what thickness (was ply used in 1939?)was the original Orlic covering?
I think it was 1.5mm but may have been 2mm around the nose.
