    This is going to be a really awesome detail.

    Cranialrectosis: I would be shocked if he adds any noseart as the original didn't have any. She does deserve a good name. Probably something French :-)

    No nose art. The airplane itself is the art and I do not want to detract from that. Name? Probably not. But maybe "La maîtresse"

    Glue finally cured late in the day. Here is a rough first cut of the straws.

    After some fine trimming and sanding we are at a good place. Unfortunately, the sanding also displayed weakness so I had to glue in 3 straws again. Oh well.

    Finished the other set of chocks. Love the look when she is parked.

    And up close. Most of the dust you see is in fact... baby powder. Lots of sanding has been done but there is more to come yet but I do hope to have some primer going on the main air frame over the long weekend.

    Those chocks rock!
    Truths in life:
    1) Everything that happens happens for a reason. Luck does not exist.
    2) In this existence we are part of the problem or part of the solution. The choice is ours.
    3) We aren't defined by our circumstances but by our reactions to them. Crisis reveals character.
