ChuckT Posted October 25, 2012 Share Posted October 25, 2012 I want to scratch build an aircraft fuselage shape to then use as a male pattern to vacuform over. I am going to glue down a set profile plans to the material I end up using and then cut the profiles out to then put together with some stringers to get my rough fuselage shape. Forgive my ignorance, but from a cost of materials and strength point of view, what material would be better suited for this task, thin balsa wood OR bass wood OR styrene? What do you guys think? Thanks in advance, Chuck. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
