Fly Boy Jon asked about the neat pair of rotary pinking shears we have been using.  I can honestly say these work one hundred times better than regular pinking shears! 

The tool is called "The Perfect Pinker" manufactured by the Florian Co.


You can buy them here:

Last nigh, the turtledeck was given the last coat of poly brush and the center section got two spray coats as well.  Then Brian ironed over the edges of the tapes to make a nice, crisp edge.

Then I poly brushed them to the longeron.





We also finished taping the first wing.



More soon!

Brian
