I am about to make the mast for the VALSHEDA I am building, it started as an active sailing model, but has evolved into a static display one.
Originally it had a mast made from a fishing rod section, as it did not matter much what it looked like, now I want to have one that resembles the original.
My idea is to make a core from timber and encase it in a carbon fibre woven tube.
Has anyone out there made one before, I look for some guidance as I expect the carbon fibre material will be quite expensive, so I do not want to have to do it more than once.
I have attached a couple of pictures of the real thing.
