3D model description

Nose/ Cowl for Tiger Moth RC plane. This is scaled for a 1m wingspan model. If you have an airplane of a different size, scale this model according to your needs.

This is an assembly video of the model plane with the original cowl.

The original transparent PET one is nice, but this new design features the followings:
- Room for larger brushless motor
- Better crash resistance and more elasticity on impact
- Better motor ventilation
- Better aerodynamics
- Possibility of adding front mass by thickening the walls for balance

Can be printed out of LW-PLA for better weight saving capabilities.
