Got the rest of the foam pieces glued together to form a blank. Transferred AST-II/AST tapers to the blank via shaping to form a few contour lines. Shaped the remainder of the block freehand by eye to form the overall shape. Did lots of test fits to get the overall lines close to right. Shaped out some of the insides of the block to improve rear sight lines. Laid layers of epoxy/fiberglass on the outside and inside of the block.

Current status is that it needs a few patches of fiberglass around some corners and other tricky areas and it will be ready for sanding, prep, and paint.
