Resin infusion is the preferred process for the carbon composite Hyperon prototype build. This method has proven to be the the most effective method for conforming to the complex/compound bends and tight internal radii. It is also a great way to control the visual pattern of the finished product.
These photos show the topographic style MDF plug used in the Hyperon build. Having explored other methods of plug creation, the topographic style has been proven to produce the best result with the least amount of hand finishing. After the plug has been through its final shaping process, gel coat application, and surface prep/polish, a standard wet lay-up of fiberglass is used to create the final mold.
