After the first coat of primer in the fall, the fuselage and wings were sanded and the sanding exposed some dings and waves in the finish. During the winter I filled the imperfections with bondo glazing putty and sanded.

Nice weather is here so I can finally give it the second coat of primer.

Going into paint yesterday:

Re: Top Flite DC3 Conversion to Electric

Well, we had quite the cold spell, didnt we?

Nice weather was finally here again, so I got a chance to put the tan base-coat on the top half of the plane today. Once this dries, OD cammo stripes will go on top
