Well, an inspection hatch to show off your work may be in order.

Slight change of plans. We came across the Spacewalker Bernie had almost complete minus a few odds and ends so I'll go ahead and complete it for the fun fly. His family really wanted to see it finished and flown so we'll shoot for that.I'll finish the one I'm building in a different color scheme and fly it as an everyday plane as not to risk Bernie's to often.

It's gasoline powered so I'm just using acrylic enamel. I'll start masking off the star-burst pattern which will be red. Then the cockpit combing, windshield etc should bring it together. I'll try to get this thing finished in a timely manner so we can get on with the fun fly. I managed to paint my legs and the grass yellow at the same time.
