Stella Final Sanding

I’m still fussing around with a few details before covering. I have finished the final sanding on the tail feathers, rounding off the leading edges of the vertical and horizontal stabilizers and sanding in 45 degree chamfers on the control surface leading edges. I also finished final shaping of the wheel pants.

Final tasks before covering are: add the guide tubes for the rudder pull-pull cables, cut hinge slots for the control surfaces, glue the horizontal and vertical stabs to the fuselage, and mist on a coat of white primer. I know that the primer will add weight, but not much, and it create a uniform base color under the semi-transparent Solite white covering.
