All of the covering has been stripped and a new set has been printed. This is a new batch of tissue and I am optimistic that it will behave when it comes time to do the shrinking.

In an effort to make some forward progress today I did finish up the wheels and got them installed along with the wheel pants. The wheels received a coat of flat black Testorís Acryl paint. To create the look of aluminum hubs disks were cut from silver tissue. This is not the exotic silver tissue sold for model airplane covering but silver tissue purchased at a store that sells supplies for parties. They had a nice selection of metallic tissue. The sliver is pretty opaque and works great for things like the disks for wheel hubs.

Hopefully tomorrow I can get the flying surface covering redone so I can move on to the fuselage.
