Brief Description:  Start of Painting

Patin is supposed to be applied over fresh alodine within 8-24 hrs after alodine applied.

Since today is Easter Sunday, and we had our family Easter celebration last Wednesday, what better time to start painting?

Started with the bottom - better to get the hang of it where no one will see, right?

So, the fuselage was put on its side, and the upper and lower surfaces were painted. A lot of brush time on the fwd fuselage floor due to the extrusions, rivets, channels, etc., so only limited spot for rollers. And it shows. I am using the "roll and tip" method whereby paint is applied, then brushed or rolled with a dry roller or brush. I used a brush. Turns out I was doing it inconsistently.

Painting was relatively quick once the rollers could be used. See more tomorrow.
