Default molding a funjet for the micro turbines production

this is a build thread for a funjet like plane with a few mods made from fiberglass i am currently in the process of building a plug to make a mold of this plane and will be offered for sale to anyone wishing to buy one will be equiped with brakes and retracts air operated should still be under the 1500 gram weight mark and far stronger that the foamies and all ready to go all the hard work done there will be a few options offered for everyone also for shipping to anywhere outside australia there will be a model offered in 3 peices with the fuse seperate to the wings any one interested in the model pm me and i will ad you to a list of people that are after one it should be avalable for sale in the next few months and anyone out there can follow the progress as i go

i will upload some more images later a have done a bit more work to the plug since the pics were taken and it really takes a bit of time to get the plug right so that everything goes together just right and the plane flies like a rocket !!!

heres my spar set up and the plane fly's good on a 3 cell 2200 3000 kv an a 6x5.5 prop now for some real power.
I am going to put a NEU 1512 2.5y and a 6 cell 3500 5x5 pr. all this comes up to 1700 watts 98 amps an 50,000 rpm on the prop should be fast but a jet would be way cooler
