    The whole fuselage is now glassed. Hoping to get the center section finished and glassed this weekend. I may take a day off from work to get the sanding and priming of everything hopefully mostly done.

    Progress!

    Take your time and check carefully around all your radiuses that the the Fiberglas is against the wood. It is hard to paint if not.

    Today I worked on the wing mounting bolts. I also tried what the owner of the local hobby shop recommended and mixed some micro balloons with finishing epoxy to see how that works for a filler before I go and spend $40 on the Blue Icing that was recommended. I have to try what I have on hand first, just to see how it works.

    I absolutely cannot wait to get this bird painted!

    I did start on glassing the center section/booms/tail tonight. =)

    The resin and micro balloons will work fine, but it's a lot harder to sand than Icing or Dolphin Glaze.

    Today's work is sponsored by Duplicolor primer. I have now gone through four cans, although I think I have sanded off about half of it while I get the hang of making things smooth.

    I am going to go to Napa and pick up some Blue Icing and see if that is easier to work with on the finished surfaces.

    I also started glassing the center section. About 1/3 done.

    I feel like I am bouncing around so much between different tasks that I am not making much progress, but I know that I am putting a lot of time into it, so things are progressing overall.
