Had this tail a long time ,thoughts ranged from a side table(wife wasn't to keen ) ,to a barbecue (still not keen).So it's a new front end and a lot of filler

Bit of a sad job for me to do but am giving it my best,
Sarah, Daves wife has very kindly given me a few unfinished projects of Daves including the 9.45. Its going to be a long term project but have made a start on it.
I still need to get the lower section sandblasted before i can think about fibre glassing or whatever over the kingspan form.
I will update when ive made more progress on this.
This is what ive done so far .
