Still working on it, but mostly boring stuff, so I have not been posting. I am now starting to cover it.
Now have the cowl ready for paint. Lots of pinholes, lots........ Prime fill pinholes, sand, prime, fill pinholes, sand, prime, fill pinholes, sand,etc. Did mention a lot of pinholes. Since I suspect the fuse had the same pinhole issue, I decided that I would see if, as I had read, you could cover glass with Coverite. The answer is, yes, with quite good results. Should finish covering the wing this weekend, and then on to finish work.
I think I will paint with a scheme I would use, if I had a full scale SpaceWalker. I really like the red/yellow scheme, but there are just too many done that way. I am going to use the same pattern, but I think I will use a cream base color, and a medium blue for trim. Maybe a green or orange pinstripe between colors. I am also going to checkerboard the bottom, I think.
