Here are a couple of pictures of a nose cone developed for the plane.  Loft was used to create this nose cone however, it was determined that this did not allow enough control over the construction of the part.

Here are some pictures of an attempt to build a prop by creating a cylinder and then three separate sketches to loft through.  The loft did not work because it did not actually create the correct curve on the leading edge of the propeller.  It ended up with a section that was more or less like a parabola that would catch air and cause drag rather than slice through the air.

Below are some drawings and pictures of a design idea to develop an EDM machine that will be attached to a Bridgeport Mill.

This back plate is what the top plate is mounted to. The outside of the telescoping piece is also steadied with the use of the Top/Bottom gussets mounted to the back plate
