Awesome Jeremy!

Perfect timing for me, due to being in the finishing stages of a jet. I am trying to figure out how the panels were raised on the nozzle. Having one panel on top of the other for the 3D affect. Or was that already molded into the nozzle? The aluminum tape is too thin to accomplish the raised panel. I have a smooth nozzle and want to create the illusion of the raised panels. Also, the strip that has the hex head design for fasteners looks to be raised above the panel. How is that accomplished? Or is that in the mold too?

that was all molded into the part. I'd use some thin G10 sheet or styrene plastic glued on to create your raised panels and strips though.

Thanks Jeremy!

Kind of what I was thinking. Iím thinking about taping the smooth cone first all the way around. Then tape each G10 panel before gluing it to the cone. Cutting the aluminum tape a little under the panel to be glued to the cone. Iím currently making land lights in the leading edge using the aluminum tape. And youíre right! Once stuck, hard to remove. I already have the candy in stock. Do you see any issues with that method?

I'd glue it all together before putting the aluminum tape on personally. No promises on how well the glue will adhere to the tape or if the glue will have any effect on the tapes adhesive. Besides that, if you make a mistake gluing a piece on over the aluminum tape you'll destroy the tape removing your panel.
