I'm building my Buttercup to "look" more like a Tailwind..

It's not hard , they are cousins and built VERY similar...
.
One of the things I did was raise the forward windshield posts by 1 inch

This help slope the windshield for more streamline , and it helps

Shape the fuselage like the Tailwind for a "Lifting Body"
.
Anywho, I'll pull a few pictures and post them here...

The main Building log with writing in more detail is :

First , Splitting the Nose Bowl...

Otherwise the Prop needs to be removed if you need inside

the engine area for any reason.
.

.
Pieces were made to screw together...

and were put in place before the nose bowl was cut.
.

.
They were formed with a"Beader" and English Wheel, the curves are too hard to

make with out it.
.

.

.
The Holes were put in the Aluminum to let the Fiberglass adhere better.
.

Gotta Fly...
