Default Engine exhaust

Well after much debate I decided not to route the exhaust to a scale location for several reasons.The weight of the extra tube, I'd have to cut and support the stringer that runs right under the scale location and lastly the glow fuel exhaust streaming down the glassed fuse. Instead I cut the appropriate sized openings in 1/64 ply then sanded down the sheeting alittle to recess the ply. Glued the ply then sanded to blend in. I used the Dremel to hollow out the area to give it some depth careful not to go through the sheeting. After I will place some cut brass or plastic tubing glued in place . Should look good with less work and the exhaust should blow farther away with less on the plane. Pete
