This week I applied two coats of UV Smooth Prime to the aft fuselage plug, and then proceeded to sand most of it off. So now the plug has a mottled pink/tan/greenish/white appearance.
Next week, I'll start work on the tail plug by painting it with a uniform coat of rattle-can primer. That will give me a guide surface that says "don't sand deeper than this." After that, I'll put on one more uniform coat of UV smooth prime.
After that, I'll do a couple coats of Poly-Fiber Top Gloss, and call it a tail.
Work (at the office and on the glider project) has generally been so frustrating this week, that a dentist appointment I had on Thursday was a welcome relief.
