This year’s early May heat wave seems to have finally exhausted itself earlier this week, though a new record for high was set at SeaTac Airport on Monday. But it is back in the mid to low 70s now, so I hope to get the delayed paint session done within the next couple of days. There are a large number of items backed up in the paint queue, and I need to progress a few of them. It has also been a generally busy time around here, including the announcement that my son and his wife are due to have a baby (our first grandchild) this December. Go Kenton and Becca!
But in the meantime, here is a shot of the Meng F-102 that is pretty close to being done. All paintwork is completed. Most of the gear doors are on. I’ve delayed putting the middle gear doors and the Master nose probe on due to the fact that they tend to be easily broken off during the decal process, which is what comes next. I'll be using a FunDekals set for the 48th Fighter Interceptor Squadron based in Langley VA.
