So it's time to finish the covering on the Corsair....Got out the O'l Hobbico iron I bought 20 years ago...still works great..whip out some favorite razor knives, and the work begins........It's gonna take a while...gotta be patient...it's one of the building chores I dread, and one of the hardest things to get to come out right..but alas the end result of a decent job can be rewarding.....

Get out the favorite razor knives and such...time to get to it...
Started on the sides first..
trimmed the side pieces to match wing contour and repeated for the other side...
Layed it out and proceeded to fit to body...
Started along the base of the wing and worked upward,slowly making sure to keep covering tight and no air bubbles
Half of one side almost done
Once you get both sides covered to your liking...Flip er over and rub her belly...I mean cover the belly
Don't forget the elevator Tim, O crap almost forgot..the more attention to detail you invest..the better you can smile when your done
Just need to install the canopy and cowl and we are almost ready to test in the street.....
