......... I like how you take the time to make sure everything would work in 1:1, it adds a lot to the realism of the build.
Thanks BK...that's the way I enjoy doing it. Since I build the stuff for real, I just automatically think that way. Can't help it.
And thank you all for the enthusiastic and positive responses to this build. This is exactly what I'd put together in 1:1 for myself if I could.
A little more fiddling, and then final disassembly for paint.

Seeing crisp pics (peruse) must help you out with future work.
Keep the updates coming.

I got some new magic, experimental filler on the top of the tonneau.....a 1:6 mix (by weight) of glass microspheres and epoxy. Same goo I use on some 1:1 planes. Adheres perfectly, sands beautifully, but takes 12 hours to cure.
...and glassed the underside. I'll be tightening up the fit on the body a bit before I pull the mold, but it's too fragile to work it without the glassed underside.

The tonneau cover looks great! Sorry if it's been asked before but do you have a link to somewhere I could get some of the fine fiberglass cloth that you've been using?
Billy, I buy the stuff on the tonneau in 56" long rolls to do aircraft control surfaces, but if you'll shoot me a PM with your address, I'll send you enough to experiment with. I'm almost out myself. That particular cloth follows compound curves beautifully. I also use a much easier to find, slightly heavier cloth stocked by hobby shops that sell RC aircraft stuff. It's a lot stiffer, and because of the weave is only really suited for flat reinforcements or two-dimensional curves.

If I didn't Know it was the messed up Deuce you had to start with, I wouldn't believe they were the same model! You have Made a Silk Puse from a Pig's Ear! Great Work!
