Lift Duct Construction

Finally the craft is starting to take on some vertical dimensions.  I installed the lift duct, put up the cockpit sides
and started on the lift duct. I cut a bunch of pieces of blue foam, and glued them all together with spray can foam.
Then I started to rough shape it and start to glue it all together. The lift fan is sitting there for show.

I found a use for all these extra strips I cut. They are flexible, and can be used to apply pressure by bowing them
between the craft and the ceiling. here I am gluing the top wood to the duct.
