I had the great fortune of having the horizontal stab rebuilt this spring.
Haven’t polished it yet.

Nice!

Polished airplanes weigh less. I just fret about polishing through the Alclad. Looks ugly when I do that.

PS if you’re gonna park it outside, especially if there’s any salt around, wipe it down with Corrosion-X or ACF-50 first. It will look like a smeary mess but when it goes back inside the hangar you can clean it up auper-fast.

Looks fantastic!

Part of me wants a bare metal airplane, but another part is glad that for now all I have to polish are props, canopy frames, and radiator trim.

I am a sucker for bare metal and fabric.

Not very practical, I know.
