Fresh Air Door and Ducting

Instead of a nose-mounted oil cooler, I am using that location for a fresh-air inlet with a variable-opening door. I fabricated a door for the inlet using a foam-core sandwich panel, fit it to the opening in the fuselage, and attached it with a hinge just forward of the opening.

A fresh air distribution box was fabricated with flanges to attach to the fuselage and holes for standard SCAT ducts to route the fresh air.
