02-26 Cub Progress

Sorry about the lack of updates recently, I've been looking for and applying for a job with a vengence so I haven't spent much time on the Cub.
Sky is busy building balsa-wood models. We have to run to the Hobby Shop every saturday to get paint or more models. He's foaming at the mouth to cover his models.
Glenn has two of the Standard J1 wings covered with one coat of clear polybrush on them.
In his "spare" time, Glenn painted my tail surfaces for me since when I paint it's "run central." Little Boo and I are headed out to the airport this morning to hook up the tail control cables and the gas shutoff valve cable.

02-09 Hooking up the stab to the trim.

Sky hasn't had school the past 2 days, cancelled due to snow. He went out to the airport this afternoon with me and watched me cut out the fabric where the stab trim mechanism is located. We put in the cross bar and hooked up the trim and tested it out. After that, we gathered the tail pieces and hung them up so Glenn could put on the final coat of polybrush and then silver them tomorrow.
