 Sailplane Construction Project Session #78

Comet Sailplane Project
After receiving a number of inputs and comments from modelers on the Sailplane distribution list and a fair amount fussing around, I have finally settled on the orange and yellow silk combination with black trim shown in the color layout below.
This afternoon I applied yellow silk covering over the doped Polyspan Lite on both sides of both elevator halves as shown below. In addition, the elevator halves have had two coats of Randolph's No. 210 clear nitrate dope. Tomorrow, I plan will cover the stab with yellow silk. The orange silk tips on the stab will be a little tricky so I will have to work through how to do that.......................Tandy
