Default RE: Composite ARF Mig29

Here are some pictures from todays work. Lesson learned on gear doors. The reason the manual shows the door cut lines being extended a 1/4' further is because the vacumn formed doors are bigger than they need to be. I didn't like the idea of cutting the mig doors bigger than scale so I cut the doors on the panel lines thinking I can make that work. Now I have to either cut the fuse and blend the piece into the door or modify the inner door panel. Its not that I didn't read the note I just ignored it on purpose. OH well.

Second thing my Mig has a couple of spots where the silver finish has seperated from the fiberglass. Its not real bad but has anyone else seen this? If so any good idea's on fixing these areas. I thought about injecting some epoxy into the effected areas. The loose area on the right side of the door and I have a black circle around the area.

Best regards
