That fuse looks a lot better than the wings we did with 6oz but then again, we didn't primer those. Seems like we end up doing so much to them while building that primer isn't worth the up front time. I see Brian's point on leaving off the primer on these types of builds.

Ah crap..... And on the topcoat too

In the pic you posted where you're installing the wing, I'm pretty sure I can see the weave of the light veil glass where the primer has been sanded back.

I used a long copper tube with a slot in the end of it to straighten them. Once they are straight you thread the pushrods onto the clevices.

Other than that everything is pretty stock PSS build. As you can see mine is pretty well ready for paint. I have a few areas in that need a little attention with spot putty and primer. Right now it's exactly 2 lbs (32oz). With paint and gear I still expect to hit my 40oz target weight.
I love the "NO EPP" sticker on the band saw...a purist...

Not that I want to muddy your thread with NOOB questions, but here comes the mud..

How do you configure the internal elevator linkage? I have been looking for posts and pics regarding this to no avail. I know you need a wire that sits on the elevator saddle, but then you use a carbon push rod that is glued to the inside of the fuse or what ...im trying to do up my old model pony pss plane.

I use a carbon tube as the pushrod with a wire epoxied into each end of the tube. A clevice is installed on each end. The pushrod simply attaches to the servo and the other end to the elevator control horn. The pushrod is not attached to the fuse in any way.

I was just thinking............ Do you reckon mixing some topcoat with talc would work as a pinhole filler?

Sweet! The colour scheme looks fantastic

The primergate thing had me a bit pissed off last night. So I locked myself in the shed and laid up another fuse. No primer of course.

Stickers to tart her up a bit...

Ever use the Icing style of bondo for filling the pinholes?

T stands for Tart
so FLG is the G for Goobers?
Tart Fixes Little Goobers?

Speaking of Goobers and Ompa Loompas...
you did wipe it down to ensure the QC's quality checkslist residue was removed before you started sanding?
