Slope Commander -PSS Part 4

Friday night I completed cutting the wing, tail and rudder templates and I also prepared the fuse for spray painting on Saturday. I used 1 K primer and added thinners to make the mix so that I could paint it on with a paint brush. I gave the fuse two coats with second coat thinner that the first coat and lightly sanded the fuse after the first coat. Before I start the spray panting I will lightly sand the fuse down with a lighter grade of sandpaper.

I can only get the foam for the wing next week but I have cut the blank blocks for the rudder stabilizer. So no hold up as jet and the work can go on. I hope to cut the stab and rudder on Saturday as well.
