Painting continues and I am sanding and priming some of the fiberglass parts and my husband is painting them. He's not complaining about being drawn into the project, in fact, he acts like he is enjoying it. He is hooked anyway because he agreed to paint the airplane for me when I first started the project. Sometimes I think he never thought it would get to this point, but don't tell him.....
Bigger parts are moving through the paint booth now.
Getting things like the ailerons and wings painted look and feel like big steps.
There isn't much to talk about when it comes to the painting. There is cleaning, sanding, filling, sanding, priming, sanding, priming, sanding and painting. It pretty much all looks the same, but there is certainly plenty of it!
The wings give the very best look so far at how the color will look on the plane. I am learning more than I want to know about painting, but looking forward to seeing it all done.
