Covering the hinge lines...

Because I'm using different colors top and bottom, I wanted to keep the demarkation line very crisp. I simply cut strips and layed them right on the hinge line, so when the control surface is permanently installed, it should come out looking very clean. This is a little more work, but not much really, and the finished product is so much cleaner/straighter too.

Pic #1 is my new iron, no more messin around. Its nice having a new iron, and a very smooth new surface to go with it. I can tell you though, it doesn't get as hot as the house iron(I have a thermometer)unless I crank it up all the way..then it will easily melt covering on/around anything..

The next few pics is of the work in progress..
