Looking good! Lots of filling, sanding and labor to get to that point. Been there, done that.

Looks like you could clear coat them and you'd be done!

Very nice.

My old Longez had a very similar paint scheme. Looks really nice getting it painted is a big deal only people who have done it understand. Keep up the work and you will be flying soon. STeve build on

The jig is nice But. There is always a but. I would rather paint the wing horizontal instead of vertical. The only places I had any run problems when I painted was on the vertical surfaces so I would put that wing flat and paint it horizontal less chance of runs. Just my .02 Steve build on

I don't know Steve. Judging from looking at the pic of the painted fuselage, he knows what he's doing. Painting this way eliminates the need to flip. That being said I painted mine horizontally and flipped them. I am not a great painter though and the RV-10 wings were an EZE one man flip. When we painted Thane's Cozy MKIV wings, I handled the gun work in my make shift paint booth and Thane kept up with mixing the paint to feed it. We painted the wings horizontally but that was a PITA having to wait for the paint to dry flip them.
