Well the covering is going on and each day sees a little progress. Covering the Raven fuselage has proven to be a little tricky. All those nice curved lines makes for some difficult covering situations. I am getting through it but if I were to do it again I would give some more thought to painting it. Maybe next time. My multiplex connectors finally came in after being back ordered so now I can also work on wiring up the spoiler servos. I installed the plywood tow hook reinforcement plate but I am going to hold off on drilling the tow hook hole until after final assembly. No need to have a lot of extra holes in the fuselage.
I am going to finish covering the fuselage then it is onto the wings. Those should be a lot easier to cover.

The hard part of the fuselage is covered. The forward part will go faster.
