    Spinner cut outs / Paper Mache

    Hey Guys,
    I haven't heard of it done this way...

    But my " Cut out " for my Spinner/Prop Clearance

    wasn't very good... I needed a better "Mock up"

    So I covered my Spinner in plastic, and then

    covered it in Paper Mache....

    After , I coated it with Elmers Glue....

    It is helping get a better idea about the cut outs needed for

    the clearance needed...

    Just thought I'd share some pictures

    Hey PC, how's that Buttercup coming? I've heard you mention bits and pieces on the B'cup group, but not clear where you are on the project overall.

    Re: Spinner cut outs / Paper Mache

    I've Been working on "slowly" getting my spinner to fit...

    The pattern ( Mock up Nose Cone) worked pretty good...

    But I still needed to make more clearance....

    I now have cleared the prop enough to continue with

    working on fastening the Nose cone to the Backing Plate...

    Here's a couple of pictures...

    Hey Guys,
    I've got most of this stage done...

    I still need to make a front support....

    I'm gonna put a plate of 6160 on top of the crush plate...

    This will stabilize the front of the spinner...

    Finishing up.... My Front Spinner Stabilizer is done...

    It took several trys to get a perfect fit....

    The aluminum disc was taken down little by little....

    I'd put it all together... and have to take it apart again...

    Finally , I got a great fit... It takes a little pressure to put it together....

    This will give it room to "Seat".....

    Here's the info and a few pix
