Hot Wire Foam cut Viggen

#1
This was my first time using a hot wire, I used the link for the formers from Flite Test, printed and traced the onto sheets of balsa wood and within an hour had the pieces cut and glued together, before I knew it I had the fuselage complete and it was ready for sanding, after a lot of sanding I used light spackel and covered the entire plane, another round of sanding and the viggen is lighter and stronger than I thought, now I'm just waiting on my EDF package from Grayson so I'll post more as this project comes along. One thing I am excited for issued of adding a paper tube inside the rear to reduce drag from the edf I 3d printed a 70mm tube (added strength)and wired it with red L.E.D.'s to give the look of after burners.
