Final Paint on the Honduran 206

Yesterday's blog was about finish the fuselage paint and today's is about finishing the registration numbers on the wings. Ian and Scott L. began prepping the wings to shoot the registration numbers immediately after the moved the fuselage back into Hangar B.

First, a stencil needed to be secured to the top of the right wing and the underside of the left wing.

Ian and Scott L. position the stencil on the top of the right wing.

Once the stencil was positioned, the protective sheet was removed.

Then the wings were moved into the paint booth, wrapped to protect the areas not needing paint, and the surface to be painted was scuffed for better paint adherence. At that point the stenciled area was shot with red paint.

Here's the finished numbers on the bottom of the left wing.

There's a very good possibility that the wings will soon be installed on the fuselage. Stay tuned.
