Default Making the 1936 Fokker CX tail fairings

Hello Shapers
I have started a new project for the Dutch Mlm museum.
In this case it concerns the tailfairing panel,or whatever I should name it.
The museum gave me a basic wooden former that needs some adds on it to be able to come to a good reproduction off this preticular panel that will be made out of 040 3003H14 alloy.
There is no technical drawing available anymore,only several pictures and the measurments on the fuselage as a guide to come to the right shape.
So a nice not alldays job with adventage on the use several techniques.

Best Regards Paul

Default Foam filling blocks


I used the foam inbetween the ply formers to see what the shape gone looks like.
It's easy to sand in shape from former to former.
It's not to use as a hammerform,but just as a checking device.
