rear windshield and disassembly
This is three cross coats of silver Poly Spray. It is used for UV protection and also builds up the weave and makes it smooth. Next step is wet sanding and another three coats.
The rear windshield was riveted today.
That was the last thing I needed to do. Now, it is time to cover the fuselage!
So, everything came off - cowling, radiator, cabane struts, center section, seats, instrument panels...it looks kinda weird this way. I got used to seeing it all together. Tomorrow we will pull the engine out of the beds. Then the gear comes off. And the fabric goes on.
I wanted to share with you pictures sent to me by model builder Anthony Hixson. He writes:
I am attaching a few pics of Randy Charles's scratch built 1/3 Jenny. He flew it at my R/C clubs Father's Day Fly-in. The Jenny flew very scale and looked great in the air. The American Flags on the struts are a nice touch.
Enjoy the pics.
Thanks, Anthony. I like the flags on the struts too. Wonder what that would look like on a full scale Jenny? Anyone know where I could find one.....
