This manual is really good:

Also, Mike how close are you to making the fuse mold on your sport jet? Can't wait to see the pics.

Hi, Matt,

We've done all the tail part molds (vertical fin/dorsal, and stabilator) and the canopy mold. We'll be making the fuselage mold in the next week or so... Just waiting on some retracts from Spring Air, to verify the position of the gear doors. Wing molds will be done at about the same time. We have traditional balsa-sheeted, glassed wings ready for test flights, but all production versions will have completely molded wings. I'm posting updates almost daily on my site, as we make test parts, and work on the skin hinging process for this plane, etc..

It's really coming along nicely... no tragic mistakes or stuck plugs in molds, or whatever.
Thanks!
