    Thanks, but really was thinking that the joint (beneath the paint) might show some stress cracking over time....which might lead to the paint doing the same thing. This plane is pretty much all fiberglass & gelcoat. It will get an automotive base/clear system.

    Nice way to work on a plane. I can see it being really useful for painting.

    Working on the fuse....simulating the panel joints and fabric covered areas below the turtledeck. Using 2-part Bondo to get a raised edge for panel overlaps. Applying it in 2 very thin coats to build an edge about the thickness of a plastic hotel room keycard. The most difficult area was the various panels around the horizontal and vertical stabs.

    The brown areas below the turtledeck is fabric covered on the real bird. I sanded off most of the gel coat here. Pink-It 3/4" pinking tape will be applied along the turtledeck lap joint (cut to 3/8" width), and the white gel coat strip down the center and along the bottom corner radius (full width).

    Now.....gotta get the other side done and glue on the pinking tape!

    Looking at all the details you are going into and making it like the full-size are you to complete in scale with the plane.

    Ok how do you become eligible to show up at top gun. Do show up and they look at the plane and yes or no, or do send pictures and then they decide. How does it work.

    You have to be somewhere Frank Tiano or one of his associates are and get noticed, then if Frank likes your model he will invite you.
