4-11 Cub Progress - Starting to put on the finish tapes.

Sky's been off school for Easter Break the past couple days, so he's been a big help out at the airport. I'm still staying with my philosophy of having him do everything I do. It takes longer, but I don't care. Rebuilding this airplane is a father-son bonding project and one that the journey is more important than the destination.

The tapes are hard to put on because of the fabric itself. It's really "slick" and doesn't have any bite to it. Once we get a coat of polybrush on the fuselage, it helps but sometimes the fabric still slides off. Glenn just laughs, "Welcome to my world."
