        the ever omnipresent metronome........

        Some masking........followed by a base layer of white..........followed by AeroThane 140 Orange-Yellow (thinned 20%)
        Pretty good gloss as you can see the paint mask backing paper on the stab.

            Things were going along so well and then........I didn't fill the weave well enough on the D-box area.....( skipped the PolySpray step )
            Now I've got some sanding in my future.....nuts.......

            Well - while I wait for paint to dry......moved on to sanding and masking the fuselage.......and filling the rear fabric that didn't get a clear coat
            Applying silver to the top of the rear fuselage section as it's going to be yellow and I didn't want the see-thru look.

              That's a pretty slick fixture! That is really going to show up at altitude, too! Painting with yellow is murder. Takes a bit to get opaque... at least with dope it does! Red is sorta the same.

              Yellow............a quick color check with the "reference" subject..... ...the impulse to peel the masking tape back is nearly overwhelming.

                  Scott,
                  Just keep plugging away at it as you are and it will soon be ready to fly. It's hard to resist the temptation but hang in there.
              Working...
