The first week of 2023 I was able to get the main base coat of paint on the aircraft, installed the wings onto the fuselage, and then get the landing gear installed. With the main portion of the aircraft assembled I did another light check. I then made the aircraft specific decals for the correct numbers and the pilot name. I still need to finish some more assembly like the landing gear doors, stabilizers, and flaps as well as some of the base coat painting of the details. I will then start the decaling and weathering of the aircraft.
