Thanks Rob

Thanks Andy

Hey Jeff,
I am glad to have done what I have so far. When you going to get back on the Tiger?????

v22,
You'll have to shed a tear tomorrow, the stripes will most probably be covered.

Finished the camo and started the black. Only got the fuse sides done, still needs the bottom. I'll let that paint set up and get it later.
Tomorrow..... more black, wing bottoms and the middle section.

John... Absolutely Fabulous. What a difference from when I saw it in Vegas. The extra work on panel lines and rivets just makes such a difference. Now let me talk you into super bright LED's in the gun barrels? You can also drill tiny holes and drop in fiber optics..... Yes...No... maybe or shut the hell up ACE....

She's looking Lethal, John. I can smell the paint from here. It's got to be loads of fun now after all of the hard work you've put into her to get this far.

Can't wait.

Finished

John,

The Tiger has had some minor progress. I did get a complete foam cutting Feather cut tekoa table system with 3 different size bows and a circular cut table from a retired RC guy who just wanted to pass it along to fellow builder. I am ready to cut the wings we talked about quite a while ago. Right now I'm finishing a glass CMP L-39. The Tiger is a good winter project and has certainly challenged my building skills.

Thanks guys
Appreciate all the nice comments.

I'm really itching to pull the masking off the cockpit windows but know I can't until I'm all done with it. It will need a protective coating when it's done and then I can pull it. Speaking of... I normally use Krylon to protect but when I used it on the jet engines I got that damned blushing problem again. It's a humidity thing, never fought that in Wyoming but have to here.
I wound up going over the Krylon with Minwax polyurethane and that fixed it.

Wow, those panel lines add so much to this plane! Amazing what a difference it makes. The Buck Nineteen went from looking really good to over that edge AWESOME!
