After making all the changes of airfoil and fuselage shape of the original Twin Jet I made the custom canopies out of balsa and glassed them and the plane using the vacuum bag method.The prep work is one of the most important steps to a good finish .I used light weight Spackle compound to fill the foam surface sanding it down with 320/400 grit and repeating the process a second time so the surface was ultra smooth before glassing. I used one layer of 2oz glass on the top of the wing,vertical stabs and canopies and one layer of 2oz followed a 1oz layer on the under side of the wing.The body got 3 layers, 6oz./2oz./1oz. and the topcoat finish is a two part automotive finish sprayed on under high pressure that went on very thin and needed no polishing .What you see is how it came out of the gun and yes it did take more hours than I want to think about.
