So it starts

After reading much about the Jart, I purchased the plans for Reed and got going.

I decided to use a high density polyester foam for the plug, The shaping was all done with a razor saw and sandpaper. This stuff sands very nicely, but what a mess!
Basic shaping done.

Fin Shaped and epoxied on. Starting to look the part now

First Layer of 160gsm glass on the plug
All sanded down and looking pointy
Canopy mould being laid up. The plug was polished 8 times with Ram wax and them buffed out. Then a layer of PVA release agent was applied with a sponge.
