Last of the priming.


With the advent of some warm weather it was a perfect time to finish priming the frame. Got to shoot epoxy primer on the vertical stab, and rudder frames. They both had zinc chromate primer, but it was a sloppy job and some rust had begun to creep in. Got all that off and shot over it with the Stits Epoxy. Now to fit everything, including the wings. Will need to modify the crossmember on the leading edge of the horizontal stab, which moves up and down for trim. It just doesn't fit. Apparently it was made for the other fuselage, but I stole it for this one.
