Sand Sand Sand

Wow, this fish kit actually requires quite a bit of work, much more than rest of my other gliders! Time to for some sanding and shaping.

The TE and balsa TE need to be sanded flush with the wings.

Sand the balsa tail bits down to get a airfoil shape. Improvised sanding block and stand. Lots of dust everywhere. Start with 80grit sand paper and finish off with 400grit

Sand and shape, hands and shoulder started to ache.

Have to do the fuse too... This EPP is stubborn stuff unlike balsa.

Have a vacuum cleaner ready

Starting to get fishy
