However my preferred method is 'planking' over formers mainly because individually fixing each plank puts very little load on the structure.
Thank You I will be using 2mm depron for the air Ducts, I know that will be Easier to bend I used a can and taped and heated the depron foam rear part of the fuselage to get a rounded form, Its getting there, Take care, Chellie
