I was bad this year. No VSC for me. But I will post a picture. Just have the control surfaces left to cover. Got distracted with some machining for the next plane and sharpening the chainsaws.

Don't feel bad. No VSC for me either. Just too many other things happening.

But your plane is looking great!

Should say, this is just covered. No clear coats. I used thinner to attach it. Less trapped water. Worked well.

 Thanks for the reminder on that routine Randy, I always forget to try it that way and I'm almost ready to do the P-38. How much clear did you have on the bare wood? I usually start covering after two good coats of 50/50 and a light sanding.

Funny how something can be dead straight prior to finish then suddenly develop and issues after covering. But I got it. Looked last night and it's still straight to I think I'm good. Sheesh!

I vaguely remember a wing I painted that when I looked at it later had a warp.   Left it over night and next day it was a straight as it was before the coat of dope.

 I've had flaps do that, curl up for a bit and then be dead straight again once they fully cure. I've also fine tuned them if necessary afterward with a Monokote iron. A wing can be a much bigger problem though, hope yours stays put Randy.

I got it fixed, but due to other demands, I haven't been in the shop for a week. Next weekend is the Jim Walker Memorial contest in Portland, OR and I hope to attend that. So not sure when I'll get back to it. I cut a slot in the bottom of the trailing edge of the offending wing and used a piece of carbon tow to basically pull it straight. Then filled with some catalyzed filler. Looked at it yesterday and it's is still straight a week after the fix, so I think I'm OK. We'll see.

This project is on long term hold. I managed to damage myself and won't be able to work on in for another month or so. Oh well.

 That's a bummer Randy, hope the recovery is going ok at least.

I guess I'm lucky Randy.  Told my rehab person about working on my planes while still using the brace, was told I should only be doing the required exercises.   I responded, "I guess that means I can't push the powered lawn mower.   The look I got and the reminded it has only been 2 1/2 weeks since surgery.  Still have to wear the brace another couple of weeks.

Now you take care of your self so we can meet up at the VSC again. Hoff
