Airframe out in the sun

The airframe is now out in the sun so that I can identify a few more surface imperfections that need to be smoothed.  It seems every time I get the surface smoothed and then topcoat primer filler I find four or five more spots needing dressing.  When will it ever end?  As a friend told me, you just have to know when to say enough is enough.   I am very happy that I will be leaving the surface in primer for now.  It can get painted once I get it in the air again and all improvements completed.

Engine fitted and firewall forward all connected.

It sure takes more time than you expect to get these projects nearing completion.  I just finished getting the rebuilt Revmaster2100D engine mounted and all hooked up once again.  This all went quite quickly as I had done it before.  I like the compactness of this airframe and engine combination, however it makes for a few bruised knuckles at times!
