John Gaertner (owner of Blue Swallow Aircraft Co.) came by this weekend and graciously offered to help tape the wings.

John Kuck also spent the day with us.

 Since the weather was nice, I gave the first wing was given three coats of poly brush.

And an aileron, too.

Ron rolled the fuselage outside and sprayed three coats of clear poly brush...

And sprayed the first coats of silver poly spray.

It's silver!!

The fuselage is ready for the first wet sanding.  Then more silver, more sanding, a coat of base white and the final blue color.

More soon
