    I used the costco cardboard idea that someone presented here to make patterns for my boot cowl metal. I worked pretty slick.Click image for larger version.

    We used lightweight aluminum flashing material we saw at the hardware store. Worked well.

    I did the same thing when making mine and still had to trim in a few places when it was made with .025.

    Hang a motor or box full of weight off the front before you drill the holes in the gingerbread. The frame will flex Once you put weight on the nose if you drilled all your gingerbread holes without weight on they won’t lineup sometimes.
