Missile hanging bracket. Basswood. I carved two copies.

Originally the horizontal stabilators went straight across on the model. They needed a slight downward cant. I was going to leave them alone, but in the final days, I knew it wouldn't look right. So I cut and sanded until I had the right angle. (But not a right angle.)

I carved the ID lights out of basswood (one for each side) and glued them to two layers of thick card stock.

I used two pieces of tape to define the canopy frame. I also used the tape to make very thin fins on the nose cone. Not sure what they do, but they are a slight, but prominent feature.

The multiple panels are very conspicuous on this plane. I used aluminum duct tape. Self adhesive, thin and flexible.

The fuselage was fiberglassed and sealed, so I covered the whole thing with auto filler. Sands easily and filled the very heavy panel lines.

A layer of fiberglas cloth, lots of layers of Minwax Polycrylic. But if you sand through, the auto putty will eat through the styrofoam. More layers of Minwax, more sanding, more sealing. But the final result is glass smooth, and very solid.
