14.2.3 More Painting

This entry is part 14 of 38 in the series 14 - Final Assembly / FInishing

In addition to the control surfaces, there are torque tubes, rudder horns and counterweights that also need to be painted. For that I’m using Rustoleum Epoxy Appliance paint.

Here are the elevator torque tubes, rudder horns and elevator counterweights (and one of the rudders from yesterday).

The aileron torque tubes got painted too. At Malcolm’s suggestion, I replaced the aluminum torque tubes with steel. He says that the aluminum tubes have too much twist.

Alter all the parts dried, I assembled the elevators. Here are the elevators (the ailerons are towards the back).

Then I assembled the canard and mounted it in the plane and put on the doghouse and hatch cover because… well, because I haven’t seen my plane white and with the canard installed. 🙂
