Fuselage - sanding and varnishing

Sanded and varnished today! Lots of it. Six hours worth. Whew.

The lower longeron that was varnished the last time was sanded with 220 grit today and given two more coats of epoxy varnish. It gave the ash a beautiful golden shine. Pretty neat looking.

Here, Brighton came to check on the progress. Think he wanted to help? What 2 yr. old wouldn't?

Station 4 Verticals were also sanded and given two more coats. You can see the color difference between the ash and the spruce.

A bunch of other Verticals and Horizontals were also sanded and given a first coat.

More sanding. More varnishing.
