Finish Heat Smoothing

In two sessions today I finished the heat smoothing on the rest of the parts that are ready to go. I rigged up a way to hang the parts from the ceiling so that I can spray them all in one round.

Tail Parts Ready to Spray

I have a system of ropes, strings, and sawhorses holding the tail parts in place.


One strategy that I came up with for handling the problems with the wingtip-wing junction was to adhere a strip of aluminum that would overhang the junction. Today I got it ready for that operation.

Here's the aluminum strip, ready to adhere.
