Chapter 25 - Finishing
Started 02/19/2012 finished xx/xx/2017 Hours worked this chapter :285
First time macro fill of the fuselage added plastic to help hold in place, not a good idea. Need to make macro stiffer next time.
Filling is off the fuselage
Installed back in on fuselage and filling surrounding aeries.
Using plastic to keep everything separate, just sanded away the plastic when that step came.
Macro fill surface between fuel cell and wing root, sanding to true up looks good. Put plastic between the two part making sure not to glue them together.
Finishing the Naca scoop
Here you can see the ears I added to bring in the air that would slip out over the scoop.
Macro the nose with plastic on the covers to keep them free.
Getting better with each application of the macro fill. Lots to sand...
Macro bottom wing
Macro inside rudder wing sanded
Macro right wing and controls
Macro top of right wing
On to primer I used PTI gray sanding primer.
Used light to make it easer to show imperfections during primer process and sanding primer repeating.....
Concord wing complete and stored ready to go. Primer going on the cowlings top and bottom.
Here you can see the engine oil check door, I used a very nice flush latch that works well and quick. I hate long pre-flight checks.
Top cowl in primer waiting on cure and sanding for next coat.
This method worked will with foam rollers, although I think is took more primer that the spray method
Between each primer coat and sanding got to the finish that will give me a very nice color coat.
I did the same with the control surfaces too
Wing complete covered waiting on the left wing to join it in storage. I used I bolts and nylon ropes to store the wings
