Hopefully the shape/angles are OK. Because it's no small task. Tuft testing will reveal all...

Tomorrow I need to make 1 more bulkhead, then find some thinner cardboard to skin it. The stuff I've used so far is double ply. Good for structural bits, but heavy and harder to cut/form.

Oh, and I should probably pick up another roll of duct tape.
