Engine compartment

Build hours: 224
The front cowl needs a hole for the engine thingy to go through and a few air holes to keep the engine thingy cool. A hole is not complete without a flange so after some masterful routing and a mess of particle board dust in the shop these dies were created for flanging.

The first hole and slot in the test cowl was done by hand with the Morry stick method (labor intensive) and the last slot was made with the die with a few whacks from the deadblow.
