This morning Tabitha came out to help with laying out the masking tapes on the right wing. We are planning to only paint the areas that are going to show, so instead of painting the whole wing white and then masking off the blue areas, we’re going to mask off the white areas, spray white, then mask off those areas, and spray blue. This will require more labor and tape, but it will save weight and paint. Weight and paint are more expensive than labor and tape at this point. We applied the fine line tape, which establishes where the lines will be. Later I’ll come back later and finish with cheap masking tape and paper. I took the ends off of the wing struts so that I can paint them while I have the white paint mixed. After lunch I came back and sprayed the first coat of Polyspray on the fuselage.
This picture also shows the section of the back seat that I mentioned earlier.
