Default Interior panels painted

Lucy's interior floors and bulkheads are painted. Everything is removable so screws will be gold on black. All parts are painted prior to assembly so rivets also show gold on black.
Yes, I know the rudder weldment is black. It's powder coated over the white so any cracks will show white.

Nice, Larry! Psychologically, painting the interior is a huge step because it helps to more fully visualize the finished airplane. Now work hard to avoid scratches!! Blue 3M tape is your friend.

Default Wings done (mostly). Fuselage started

Both top skins on. One flap hinge drilled. It's going to be in this state for a while as I have started the fuselage.
