Many thanks to another Sherwood builder (Danny) for sharing these pictures with me …
Shows I’ve got a few more hours work to perfect the re-modelling of the top cowl.
Looking at these – Danny has made a great job of modelling the intakes and make a very smooth entry … I now realise what’s involved to ensure a SMOOTH intake flow rather than the abrupt angles I have which I guess cause turbulence under differing in line speeds !
I can also see, from Danny’s measurements that I am about 5-6cm smaller in BOTH height AND width !
I was feeling that I shouldn’t ingress into the part where the top and bottom overlap but Danny has made an excellent job of re-shaping that.
Time for some careful dremel work and tape up tests … then off with the cowl for filling and smoothing and re-painting once my temps are back where they should be under power.
Cheers Danny 🙂
