Swoose #2

Just got the floats hung today on #2. Ready to be handed over to my friend for finish sanding and covering. Mine is sheeted and glassed, still glassing then into the paint shop. {Garage}.

YS 1.10!!!!!! I know!! The smallest engine I have on hand was the SK 80 and I was going to use it until I had to move my fuel tank back too far. Don't want to play that game again so I needed a pumper. I have a few YS engines on hand so??
I just finished mounting the floats on mine and ran out of wood making the skirts. I will be picking your brain when I start designing the paint scheme. I also have a new guy in my wood working club that is a graphic designer that has some ideas.
Me, with an air brush?? It will have to be simple.

Thanks, I really am glad to hear you like it. The paint is still a big question mark. A base of yellow Latex with the red, blue and orange two part epoxy with a Nelson clear coat but you know me and designs so????????? I'll send you photos when I have mine completely finished and ready to paint. Your ideas are way better then mine when it comes to anything in the way of designing trims. I have zero talent. Building is easy, making it look good is hard!!

It was pick up day for #2 so I got a photo when Smitty came by to get his plane while they were both still in the bones.I started glassing the fuse to mine today and will be finished in a few days. Then it's a light sanding and the finish coat then more sanding. I mix up a 50/50 blend of the Deft and baby powder to fill in any weave still shownig so not only is it a dusty mess to sand but it stinks too!
