I am building a VANS RV-4 aircraft. If your not involved in homebuilt aircraft it wont be too interesting, but if you are a part of that elite group it just might be. My intention is to include ONLY the interesting details, so the rate of change will be quite slow!

Painting was finished last Sunday.

After five and a half hectic days, and late nights, painting is complete. Here is a representative picture. It will be a while before G-IKON is assembled.

Painting started yesterday

Last night we finally started spraying primer. Yesterday, working with a professional, more was accomplished in terms of filling and prep than I had accomplished in the previous three weeks.
Seeing the metal with the scuff marks of preperation, odd spots of filler etc., turn to a smooth even colour is a most exciting moment.
With the colour we are using, a very dark grey the matt finish makes it look a bit like the colours of a stealth fighter.
