How to repair old cowlings
A fast and "creative" way repairing old cowlings when they are not available any more. Done so with an old Tiger Moth cowling.
One side was cracked and cut for a certain motor which was changed to a Saito gaser.
The other side was nice and clean and looked symmetric, so I had the idea to use the better side as a positive.
So I used cling film as a separation layer and used some glas layers ont top of the good side.
Next steps are cut out the bad parts and insert the replacement.
after that adding a glas layer on the out and inside
Cutting the excess material and sanding down the edges
Applying primer, putty and filler than sanding
preparing for painting after a lot of sanding....
