Decided to try shaping a different material for BB/Paipo builds -- high density, cross-linked polyethylene foam. Should be lighter than wood and not too much heavier than stringerless foam with a heavy glassing schedule. No glassing required.
Eliminating glassing should speed up the build/prototyping process. Will try a simple, standard shape to figure out shaping first.
Only color available from supplier in this density.
This will be a slow build while I figure out how to shape it.
