Spraying the fuselage

 As of this evening...the fuselage is blue!

Just to give you an idea of what the burnished cowl will look like against the Bahama Blue fuselage.

Our youngest son Brighton came to the shop tonight to assist Ron and I with the taping.

This lower wing is now taped and ready for poly brush.

Ron also sprayed white on the turtledeck.  After some wet sanding, it will be blue.

More soon...enjoy

That color is stunning! Just stunning! When finished, she'll look great both on the ground and in the sky! Although, I'd like to take my finger and slightly tap it on the fuselage skin just to hear the "thunk" ;)
Keep up the great work!
