Give me some Skin





Continuing with the fabricing of the flight controls using the "green" Stewart system of water-born coatings. This is the fill coats; grey UV protection. Excellent stuff to work with-tastes very similar to latex paint.Second job of the week was installing the vertical stab leading edge aluminum. The rotating jig brought tears of joy to my eyes. Im as proud of it as a new daddy. Pics show fuselage rotated to ite side to nail the skin on.

Saw this in a website my buddy Russell sent me . How to form a leading edge by sucking the life out of it! Sort of. Pictures tell the story.
