    reflection

    I have been warned all over about reflection-problems with my glossy shell. My shell is painted with 90 shine paint, glass windows, and MIP top-plate is coated with shiny black plastic coating.

    My shell has been running almost 24hour at Norwegian armed forces aircraft collection, at Gardermoen airport this weekend. In all kind of lights, including the sun from behind. The only problem that occured was that when the afternoon-sun was strongest, the image washed away on the wall. But still no reflections at all.

    So thats good news for me and probably for some others.

    Ivar- Some questions for you

    Ivar

    Your shell construction is nothing short of fantastic, especially considering how you can get it thru a normal door (from what I can tell anyhow!) by taking the halves apart.
    The fact that one half will stand on its own is a testament to the construction quality.

    I have a lot of really reliable info for my Learjet 45 demensions, but I have a problem figuring out how to build this thing and then it be in two halves like you have, which is a MUST for my project (or at the least, able to be disasembled).

    Can you share some insight into how you built it and made it strong? I appreciate your help, and anyone else who's built the more complete shells like this, and Paul Wood's.

    Thanks,


    ALSO, can you say how much you think the base weighs and the weight of your shell?
