Today was spent on more preliminary fabric work and painting. We turned the fabric panel we shrunk and painted last time into many reinforcing patches for inspection plates and such. Meanwhile, a new smaller panel was put on the frame and prepared the same way to be used for more such reinforcements. The process of painting engine parts and the fuel tank also continued with fresh coats of either primer or the Continental gold paint. Engine assembly will begin once all the parts have gotten their final coat. The next work session will be Saturday, December 2nd at 9:30.
