Tony,

Looking forward to seeing the brackets. I love the paint scheme. Can't wait to see what the painted cowl looks like mounted on the airplane.

With the wing tips already mounted, how were your wings painted? I have seen fancy wing rigs that can rotate, but usually this is done with the wing tips off and a support in place. Were your wings painted while mounted to the fuselage?
Glen,

They were hung by the trailing edge. Will get a photo of the brackets I made. New Picasa album with a few paint details: https://picasaweb.google.com/tonyboytoo/Paint
Trim was done with wings flat on horses.

If they were your's, you'll have 2 destroyed airplanes and no more excuses not to build a Panther.
