I beg to differ with you. I'm still working as an electrical engineer, doing lots and lots of programming. I exercise my brain to death and I am getting more forgetful everyday... at least from what I can remember. Go inside the house to get something and, as soon as I open the door... uh... where was I going with this. Anyway... uh.. yeah, whatever.

Same equation, same outcome.

Are you forgetful at work? No! But as soon as all the activity is gone, well, then you are.

And all the ribs and spars have been pinked. I will let those set until tomorrow and then do the perimeter tapes.

Two hours in on the perimeter tape and the ailerons are done. The ailerons are the worst part to me so got them out of the way first thing. I will let dry then trim and clean them up.
Next up, the tail feathers.

Slowly, but better.
Took a break from taking a break and finished up the bottom wing halves. The top wing and fin/turtle deck are all that remains needing tape before ironing it all out.

Thought I'd start with the hardest of the last few pieces of pinking, the fin/turtle. What a real PTA, but, it is done!!
