The laminated prop carving block is all glued up and clamped with two larger outside 1/8" thick clamping protection bare balsa sheet plates. There should be thick grain lines of alternating bronze and burnt sienna colors with enough bare balsa between them to accept red "Cabernet" wood stain after prop carving and sanding - I hope ...

The planks are being white glued and stacked - the bronze side face of one plank is glued to the bronze side face of the next plank, and the burnt sienna side face of one plank is glued to the burnt sienna face of the next plank etc etc - the glue should dry invisible.

The planks and many clamps are ready, plus two 1/8" thick larger "bare" blasa plank/sheets for protection of the lamination planks from the clamp teeth.

Speaking of snakes, I caught one of these "Fox Snakes" bare-handed 50 yrs ago when I was 10. It was 6 feet long and 6" in diameter, trying to slither away fast up the far bank of the creek near our house - I instinctively poounced on him right away with a good firm grip on his neck just behind the head as I held him down with my foot. He coiled right up my arm like the constrictor he is, and I brought him into the kitchen to freak out my mom ... then let him go.

After I broke the rubber on the Cabinaire from too many winds, I just put the plane on the shelf and went to bed. I snapped awake in the middle of the night, with the sudden realization, that that bunched up tightly wound knot of rubber in the back of the fuse, could explode at any time, and take out my other models on the shelf ! I got up and started to cut it out, and it was striking out and snapping at me and the plane, like an angry, coiled up, DIAMOND BACK RATTLESNAKE !! - trying to do more damage right to the very end ... I have 4 fuse tissue panels to replace.

Heywood - this is what I meant when I asked about 3D Isometric (iso) computer drawn pics on the plan. I think just the more recent releases by Dumas have these - I find them very handy! - 18" Spad 7

I applied 3 coats of Krylon Clear Gloss rattle can spray in my makeshift cardboard box spray booth in the bathroom that has a ceiling fan - just close the door!

The tissue did dry drum tight.

This wet tissue was spray misted with water - instead of pure atomized spray, there were small droplets of water on the tissue, which do leave a round water mark - I need a new spray atomizer from Dollarama.

I made two jigs for the repair tissue, built extra large, just in case ...
