Needed a little motivation to get myself to the end of this project, so I decided to lay some vinyl down to get this a little closer to the end and I think that the end could probably be tonight after this. My original plan was red and white but I think after the black gets a clear coat it will look pretty good black and white. Just about to paint the wing struts and then there are still those two bottom skins , two pieces to set behind the rear window opening and last but not least shape the front piece of the cowl and that should be almost it.

Wow! That looks just amazing in those colors. (y)(y)(y).(y)(y) X 10-10th for U. I am wondering if vinyl will go on aircraft fabric. I am thinking about doing using it for the red trim of my Cub with it. I am using Oratex fabric.
