Hey guys, thanks for all the positive words. We stuffed the mechanics in it the other night just to make double sure that there is no interference with the tail servo and the supports that I installed. It fits like it was made that way. Now to clear all the crap out of my shed to make it into a paint booth. I should have it painted in the next 2 weeks. Dalton will be here soon enough. Decals and paint stencils being made by Calie Graphics.

Well, it couldn't be helped. While repairing the tail part where the gelcoat blew out, some rivets had to go. This is my first attempt at riveting. Who said that riveting is therapy lol!

Looks like a fantastic repair, curious which tail gears blew out tail or the angle, did you find the cause ?

Thanks, the angle gears let go. We feel it was a shim problem. Callie graphics made the decals and paint masking, they showed up yesterday and look fantastic. I should have it finished by this time next week.

Ok, starting the paint process. Got all the gelcoat cracks filled and sanded. The panel lines are filled in pretty good from the factory with all thick coats of paint and clear. I dropped my hobby knife the other day and the tip broke off, the perfect size to scrape out the panel lines. Use a straight edge to guide the blade along.

Shot the final coat of primer on the main part of the fuse. Then it was time for rivits, a lot of them new, most are re-touched.

Time to go and shoot some white base. I have this project running down hill now!

Very nice and the rivets look very good. I actually like to do rivets and find it therapeutic. Not sure what that says about me. :-)

Considering how bad the crash damage was, I am making progress. I got the main part of the fuse painted white.

The fluorescent light doesn't help but, it is white. As soon as it stops raining, I can swap out for the tail. It will be a long night.

DONE!

Ok, I have done all that I can do for now. It is time to give it back to the owner. The decals will arrive next week and the owner will put them on.
It was a big task that is for sure. I think the final outcome turned out pretty good for what I had to work with.
More pics to come.
