I see a few posts back that I said that maybe by the middle of the week I would be spraying it.  I said that on July 28.  Well now it's August 10 and I finally started to spray poly brush.  Ready for poly spray tomorrow.  Nice thing about this paint job, is the majority of the plane will be gray like my Kitfox 1 was.  And that gray is actually poly spray.  So maybe it wont be that long before I can start spraying the Kitfox 3 once this one gets out of the booth.  Oh well.  JImChuk

Thanks guys.  It's been a long time getting to this point.  Still a long way to go though..  :-)   Still have to do the colors on the tailfeathers.  And then of course there is the panel and FWF.  Ya, it'll be a while yet.

Nice work! I like the paint scheme.

Is this going to fly before we see snow?

Thanks,  I'm copying the color scheme on my Kitfox 1 that I had.  Will be putting red pinstriping on the orange stripe.  Won't fly this winter I'm guessing.

Tailfeathers are done as well.  My wife says it's far and away the best looking paint job I've done all year.  The more far and away you get from it, the better it looks.  :lmao: I'm sure glad it's done.  JImChuk
