  2. Dam runs, just when it looks great it turns to poop! It's looking good.

    Flat black painted on the cowl. Final paint job done... (other than the floats). Feels good!

    It still has to dry//fully cure.

    Installed the sea fins. Not sure what size screws I was supposed to use, but but I ended up having to file the heads down a little bit for some extra clearance.

    The manual mentioned using double back tape for the tail cones. I had some 3M 950 1/2” tape and decided to give it a try. This would make accessing the elevator and rudder linkages possible in the future... seems to work well and is holding great.

  9. Are you putting the plane on the floats or wheels?

    Floats... eventually. I'm debating whether to put it on wheels first to get it up in the air and build the floats later.
