Single Malt update

Here are a couple of photos showing the fore body and nose cone progress. I decided that I wanted a smoother transition between these parts, hence the section cut out of the 3" tube. I'm going to cover this with a piece of 3/16" Gatorflex® foam board left over from my Art Applewhite 38mm Delta Saucer. It turned out the gaping hole made the attachment of the two body sections a lot easier.

Next steps:
  • Add the Gatorflex® plate.
  • More sanding/filling of the cone.
  • Decide whether I should glass the foam cone. The obvious answer should be 'yes', but I'm not sure.
  • Mount a smaller tube on the bottom of the 3" tube.
