Next steps will involve fine filling and shaping, painting, motor and battery compartment base installed permanently.

It was a beautiful afternoon and it was suggested I go out flying.  I charged three batteries and maidened the repaired plane.  It flew ok, but not perfect. 

I have come home and offset the motor with 2 washers top left and one lower left.  I think this will help.

I also started to fill and fine finish the repaired outer blue foam fuselage surfaces with dollar store white paint.  One coat of white applied. 

"Bye, bye blue foam."

A second coat will be applied tomorrow.  Silver Dollar Store paint and black pin-stripes will also be applied to match original colour scheme.

That looks fantastic.  What an inspiring repair thread... thanks Bruce.

The filling and sanding on the front nose is perfect.

Nicely done.
