Mauricio, do you use a heat gun, or, a simple haIrdryer to shape the plastic cabin on the blue mold? Is the canopy material some simple sheet cut from an empty soda bottle that softens when heated?

Andras, to your questions:
I use a heat gun, a hair dryer is NOT powerful enough.
Yes, it is a soda bottle, it can also be soft drinks, the material is called PET.
Here I leave a video of my authorship with procedural steps.
In the video it is a wooden matrix, I apply paint to observe details that I later remove so that it does not stick when giving heat with the gun.
In the case of the matrix for the micro P-51, the matrix is made of dentist's plaster.

ok, this model aero plane doesn't come with a landing gear, so as I go along, I'm adding a couple of kiri wood ribs as reinforcement, just to place a support for the main gear legs.
I could leave it without landing gear, but I want to avoid breaking propellers when landing, since in my country it is very complicated to acquire spare parts and accessories.

Eric, dear friend, as I show here in this link, the matrix is made of plaster, but copying an original cabin, therefore it is removed from the mold and there is no need to sand.
Similarly, if it has to be sanded, once the plaster is dry, it can be sanded perfectly.

Mauricio, nice progress! Is your plan from Outerzone? Do you scale up or down the original design? I do not see any dimension on the plan you use.

What is the wingspan?

thanks friend!
Yes, the plane is in outerzone. https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=2271
For the Cox .010, you should take it to a 21-inch wingspan (that's my opinion)
in the drawing for Cox .010 indicates 18 inches, but in my opinion two more inches with an additional fuel tank, will be the most appropriate measure to enjoy this aero model.
In my case, it is designed to use the original Cox .010 fuel tank and also if you want longer flights, you will carry an additional tank. In that case the original tank is only used as a motor mount
.

Thanks for the advice, Mauricio. I will check the drawing on Outerzone.

Yes, I normally use external tanks on my TeeDee 010 abd 020 engines, for longer flights.

.....

Mauricio,

did you just scale up the rib-to-rib distances at a ratio of 21/18, or, added extra ribs to extend the wingspan from 18 to 21 inches?
