Just about finished with the assembly of all the detail pieces. But currently on hold for some more stencils, lol, you're gonna love this. I have not been very inspired to work on it for a couple reasons, two are very minor flaws by way of some fine dust particles in some very obvious places, but the crème de la crème is the stars and bars on the top wing. First pic is how mine turned out due to not knowing the templates were not to an absolute point. Second as is on the full scale. So! I am waiting on those templates so I can reposition those stars and bars. Don't worry, it is not that big of an ordeal to sand them out and repaint. As soon as the templates get here it will be completed, everything will be ready and waiting. And all the other items will be done by then as well. Should have this bird done by the end of the month.

We've said all along we appreciate the fact that you aren't afraid of "do-overs"..

Next time, here's some advice from a professional screw-up....get an overhead projector, and adjust the image to your 'scale' with the plans on the wall. Everything will be in proportion,even if your eye says otherwise...

Full size pilots do this all the time-Matt Chapman, Rich Stewart,etc.

That's a damn good idea Earl. I'll look to get one before the next build.

I just received word the vinyl will get shipped tomorrow so I should have it by Thursday or Friday. Still no ship date on the new canopy. But I have not been sitting still, the paint room/ model shop has been dry walled. Monday I will mud it and get the ceiling and walls prepped for paint, which won't happen until I am done painting the Pitts. If everything comes in next week then the following will be finish the Pitts week. Getting ready to head back home, just a little clean up to do.

The pin striping has been removed and the adhesive took forever. Then I wet sanded all the existing paint lines off. It is ready for some silver and white. I will get started first thing in the morning.
