Section: 46B
Hours: 4

Today I continued working on the landing gear leg fairings. I marked the trim lines with black felt tip on the gear leg transition pieces and trimmed and sanded with the dremel. I used a block of wood and a couple of clamps to hold the fairing in place while cutting and rough sanding.

 I then hand sanded to the trim lines using 80 grit sandpaper and a long block and a round sanding block.

Next I mounted the tires.
I asked my wife to pick up some baby powder at the grocery the other day but it is no longer sold because it is a health hazard so I had to order tire talc from Aircraft Spruce.
Here are the tires assembled and inflated.
