    Fuse is also stripped and sanded.

    While I have my garage converted to a spray booth, tomorrow I will get all the big parts painted in the base colours!.

    PPG base / clear will be used.

    Hey Trevor,

    Can't wait until you've got your CF-18's ready to go.......when do you think the maiden flight will be (unemployment means plenty of free time for 'road trips' up to Canada you know '-) )

    A few pictures or mine in the base grey and a few parts done in the blue. I will let the paint cure for a couple days and will then paint the backbone of the fuse in the faded blue.

    I can now put on all the water transfers on the grey and finish the fuel tanks and armament

    Thx! They are there! With the panel lines. Pics just don't show it. Once cleared I will dirty it up a bit and the rivets will pop again
