An annoying cold has arrived at the Amateur Airplanes household and it is currently my turn to fight it off. Now I’m not in the original groove that I started with but it helped out tremendously for just a time like these past few days.
So all my whining aside, I have still managed to get some work done. The F-2 and Cougar are essentially ready for paint. I need to give the instructions a good look to make sure that I haven’t forgotten anything but I feel pretty confident. The Cougar should go well with paint. The F-2 on the other hand, I’m worried about the lighter blue color. I can’t find an exact color so it looks like I’ll be mixing one up. I’ll do a little more research to try to find a good mix then go from there.
The Canberras are coming along great. The wings were installed yesterday with the wing roots being filled this morning. I’ll give them a good sanding tomorrow and get a good layer of primer applied. I will also go ahead and install the horizontal stabilizers sometime tomorrow as well. After that, final paint will be knocking on the door.
Last but not least, the B-25 is performing well. I’ve been methodically taking my time here. The ballast was added this morning and my fingers are crossed that there is enough in there. I picked up where I left off this afternoon and joined the fuselage halves as well as installing the engine nacelles to the wings. The next step is a good round of sanding. It doesn’t look like I’ll need to add much filler but we’ll see.
