Have you worked out a paint scheme for it yet?

I have a few thoughts on that, currently I am leaning towards a reddish purple for the fuselage and a straw yellow like the wheels of a ford model A for the wings.

Dan Helsper's Piet has a similar dark fuselage/light wings scheme.

after a busy couple of weeks i got to spend a good part of today in the shop. I got a lot of the reinforcement patches on the horizontal stab. and did quite a bit of edge taping. I think the vertical fin is ready for paint now

did some more tape work on the rudder and now it is ready for pain. I also did some anti chafe taping on an elevator getting it ready to cover. I did learn two things today though. 1. do not use the tip of your thumb to clean ecobond glue off the blade of the scissors, and 2. you use the tip of your thumb a lot when doing fabric work.

still plugging away on getting the tail feathers covered, I got fabric on one of the elevators and finished the reinforcement patches on the horizontal stab.

more progress on the fabric work. covered the other elevator and did more tape and reinforcement patching.
but the slit i cut for the control horn opened more when I shrunk the fabric. I patched it but undecided if I want to leave it or start over. There is another reinforcement patch that goes over that area and a tape so it may not be too bad, but it is on the top of the elevator (of course) What would you all do?

I think I would just apply a neat patch and keep moving.

I went ahead and put the tapes and patches on. It isn't too bad, I really wish it had been on the bottom instead of the top though. But it is an amateur fabric job and since it is my first attempt at doing it it isn't half bad looking. I may leave it for now and see how much fabric and ecobond I have left when the job is complete do decide if i want to redo it or not.

Braved the heat and put the fabric on my right aileron. That was harder then I thought it would be, but I think it will turn out ok after it is shrunk and the tapes are put on.

I shrunk the fabric on my aileron and did some of the tapes, It isn't perfect but certainly airworthy and I think when all the reinforcement patches and tapes are on it should look pretty good.

It looks good; the last one will be prefect, but they will all fly well! Cheers, Jim

The tapes are finished on the ailerons and they are ready for painting now.
next up I will try to tackle one of the wings.
