    well....guess I made yet ANOTHER boo boo.......I had it sanded slick as glass, and didnt have any sand and sealer so just sprayed it. What a lesson (I'll know on the next one haha). It raised the grain pretty good........sanded it all back down to the wood, 400 slick. Then mixed some squeeze tube plastic wood filler and water to make it like snot and spread it on let it dry and sanded 400 slick again. Waiting on some deft lacquer sand and sealer I ordered now, then continue on! I gotta stop trying to get in a hurry. Hope Im doing it half way right, Ive seen and read a few different ways that people do it.

    I've done automotive custom paint and airbrush for years, but this is a different curve for me.

    Hollywood691- good for you putting that block in the neck pocket.
    We've all made mistakes in builds and sometimes "necessity is the Mother of Invention"
    That Ash blank was too good to throw into a fire.
    the build, BTW, is looking good.

    Thanks E-miel, That wood frame was actually built by a friend to hold parts of his airplane when I painted it for him, its just still in my spray booth so I figured I may as well use it haha!

    Well, filler, then 3 coats of sanding sealer, sanded with 400 and started again. Its nothing to write home to mother about, but much better than first finishing attempt. Gotta get all my hardware now. 20190112_111501.jpg
