Tapes on fuselage

Had a few spare hours last evening, so I started making all the reinforcing patches for the fuselage.  Using the rotary pinking tool, the patches were cut from the pre-shrunk fabric we made. 

Then the patches were poly brushed in place.

Around the tail, too.  The patches will have their edges cleaned up later.

And the top longerons got some tape.  Next step is to iron over the flap and poly brush it to the top of the longeron.  I didn't do that last night because I wanted the poly brush to be good and dry before touching anything with an iron!

More soon.  Enjoy
