Jim Scoles Wittman Tailwind

Jim Scoles, Ottawa, Canada

Year Built: 2015

Materials Painted: 102 Cloth, Aluminum, Fiberglass

Primer: Sherwin Williams

Color Paint: Sherwin Williams High Performance Interior Exterior Gloss

Notes: The Latex seems plenty durable. Soft and flexible. I covered the fuselage with ceconite 102 and glued it with 3m latex glue. Before paint I brushed on a coat of latex glue thinned with water and methyl hydrate to give the paint something better to stick to. Still have to finish the striping on the cowl. I did not sand or buff my paint job and it sill turned out quite nice. Perhaps once I get the bugs all worked out I will sand an polish but for now I am having blast flying the little bird.
