Joseph Osborn's Tail Duct

Joseph Osborn says, "By the way, your instructions for the radius turner were great; I was able to get the first part I needed from it made up fairly easily. I've attached two photos showing the raw part and the finished assembly. It's a 1/35 scale tail duct for an MD520N helicopter, which doesn't have a conventional tail rotor but instead blows air through its tailboom and out a perpendicular duct at the end of the boom. The main part is turned polyurethane resin and the brass is photoetched and bent into assemblies to fit the main part. No way I could have made this part without using the lathe!"
