LOL, no. All painting is done on the porch and then brought back into the warm house to dry.

Just a little red trim work on the bottom this morning. I'll let that dry for a bit and then start gluing the bottom section on.

Sure glad I found that aluminum square laying around at work. Seems to be working out well.

Looking good. Just make sure you don't glue the angle to the plane. That might increase the flying wait just a tad bit !!!

Trussing in place using the updated stab technique:



For others that come along don't sweat cutting the carbon trusses perfectly. Greg provides more than enough carbon in the kit to get the job done. I had a full stick and a half left when I was done.

Funny...it doesn't look that big in those pics (at least compared to a standard McFoamy).
