Ditto on Waynes question. You've piqued my interest.

Wayne (and company  ;D ),

No, some kind of contamination. I kept getting fish eye, then when I overcame that, got puckering. Really weird. But, as I am the inventive sort and never afraid of a challenge. I just stripped the whole area, put down new fillet material, sanded, cleaned the crap out of it and shot paint on it yesterday. Whatever monsterous demon was there is now exorcised and the whole plane is white and ready for trim.

What an enormous pain. But as Mark Scarborough says, the best finishers are the ones that can overcome issues.  This base is far from perfect and if I had the patience, I would sand the whole thing down with 600 wet, reshoot and make it perfect. But as it turns out, I don't have the patience and I don't want it to weigh 80oz when done. Shouldn't look too bad and has the chance of being done for VSC. Maybe.

 Good luck from here on out, and get those VSC reservations made!

 And yeah that reminds me, I haven't "seen" Mark around here for awhile.

Mark's hanging out in Libby, Montana. Poor him.

Meanwhile, I plan to send in my reservation for the banquet and contest next month. My housing for the week is taken care of.

And since I finally go base color done (though it will now need some touch up due to tape pulling up paint bits - sigh), I got most of the paint on the fuse. Still some black and some stuff on the bottom to put on, but here it is so far.

Your a long way away.  :D

It's OK, just needs some cleanup.

 Great looking scheme Randy, nice and clean. Must be pretty close to done by now?

Hey Wayne,

Sorry, I was off on vacation for the last 12 days. Just got back. I will continue on this weekend. Getting close. Trying to decide how much in the way of inklines I want to invest. Worth didn't use many.
