dust

side hold downs

Recommended Posts

When we built the sides and took them off the forms there were divits from the micro, my advice, use less micro, and more carpet tape, you will have less divits to repair later.


maker wood dust and shavings - foam and fiberglass dust and one day a cozy will pop out, enjoying the build

I used drywall screws to hold the fuselage foam to the jigs. I had no divots to fill or fix.

Yeah, these divots are awful. Wish I would have followed Wayne's method on this one. I have a bunch of divots on each side, and epoxy leaked through at the fuel gauge area... this made a big mess and I had to fill in a big area with micro. I fixed some larger divots with the foam that ripped out, fixed smaller ones with just micro. I hope all this micro in my fuselage sides doesn't cause any problems down the road.
