My Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 Rebuild Diary 2010.

June - 2010. Paintwork.
I have taken on a really complicated paint design! After the fabric work I now have the cowls - no straight flat surfaces it's rounded now! Painting is taking a long time. I am also having problems protecting parts I have painted from overspray when painting more parts in my small workshop.

When I decided on the paint design I had not thought about how hard it may be to do - or make both sides match!
It took a long time to mask the cowls.
I used lots of line tape and masking tape painting my Great Lakes.
