Have you decided on what materials to use?
I was hoping to find some chloroplast for all the simple curves, because it's very lightweight and rigid I will need to make a Fiberglass nose cone, but I am going with a much smaller one than Craig. I found some solar/uv curing resin that I am going to try for this. it's supposed to make the whole fiberglass thing much easier, as you have infinite working time in the shade, then you just set it in the sun and it cures. if this resin works I could make nosecones for as little as $50 each.
Does anyone know how much cooling airflow i'll need? I can get small fans meant for venting the engine compartment in a boat, but I don't know if they are big enough.
