Thanks brother. Learned a few things on this one...
1. Don't model highly polished aluminum aircraft.
2. Brew a lot of coffee

And a lot of tack cloth! That stuff shows dust like a mountain!I tack the Monokote, tack the wood, peel the backing and tack the sticky side of the covering since it has static, then tack the balsa again, then lay the MK down, then feel for dust...and tack, again! LOL Its nuts. Never again.

Looks like you aced the covering on the spinner!

It really looks great, can't wait to see the other details.

That looks absolutely stunning. You know the weather in the Orlando-Kissimmee area would be ideal for a test flight.

Wow--that looks phenomenal!

I would have lost a few bucks wagering whether you could get that spinner covered without looking ratty.

Mark,

I can see why you would not want to do it again, but, it is superb. And no one but you will see any of the problem areas.

Congratulations on a job well done. I wish I covered a tenth as well as you do.

Mary Popins would say:

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!


Origin and meaning

According to Richard M. Sherman, co-writer of the song with his brother, Robert, the word was created by them in two weeks, mostly out of double-talk.[2]

The roots of the word have been defined[3] as follows: super- "above", cali- "beauty", fragilistic- "delicate", expiali- "to atone", and docious- "educable", with the sum of these parts signifying roughly "Atoning for educability through delicate beauty." Although the word contains recognizable English morphemes, it does not follow the rules of English morphology as a whole. The morpheme -istic is a suffix in English, whereas the morpheme ex- is typically a prefix; so following normal English morphological rules, it would represent two words: supercalifragilistic and expialidocious. The pronunciation also leans towards it being two words since the letter c does not usually sound like a k when followed by an e.

According to the film, it is defined as "something to say when you have nothing to say".
