Default New Fiberglass Project

A while back I posted some pictures of a few fiberglass car bodies that I made for a 1/8 scale nitro powered chassis. Because of those postings, I received many inquiries as to how I built them. I am just beginning a helicopter fuselage and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in me posting specifics of the process with pictures and descriptions of the procedures that I use. I know that this is not a boat but the concepts apply to boat construction as far as making a plug, making the mold and finally pulling pieces from the mold. I am posting this notice in several different places in this forum. If I get enough interest, I will start posting photos and text next week. If you are interested, let me know.

Johnny 5 is the robot from the movie Short Circuit...

The Mach 5, or Mach Go, is from an old 60's Japanese anime known as "Speed Racer" in the United States.

The Wakowski brothers, known for the Matrix movies, are working on a live action movie for Speed Racer.
