As the Pitts
Chuck uses a variety of materials including this
sheetmetal that he is adding over his fuselage.
Next comes the Poly Brush; You should really do this in a well
ventilated area, but if you do some of the smaller pieces in the garage, after
awhile you don’t care. Heck, after awhile, your wife don’t even care.
Read and follow the directions, if you don’t have a HVLP paint
system and fresh air unit – get one! Surely you have people in your town that is
also building a project. I was fortunate, another buddy of mine was also
building a project and had purchased one and was kind enough to let me use his.
NOTE: when you take on a project like building a plane from scratch – you need
buddies – lots of buddies. And get use to being indebted to them because you
can’t do this alone. The hardest part is you have to be nice to them as long as
you need them – but when it’s done! – you can go back to being your normal self.
