Default RE: Molding a Dirty Bridy 60 Fuselage

A lot of the time I have just used 1/4" temperer masonite for the parting board, no mylar anymore, and just waxed the parting board a couple of coats of partall #2, then pva one coat and its release just fine. Watch it with pva, if you get a little to thick it has gotten spider cracks, which will show up in the finished mold surface. It happen to me once and I had to sand using 1000 grit to remove them from the gelcoat. Your work is looking good!
