The Transformation...

To appreciate where we are today, I thought it would be fun to browse through some pics of the transformation from what N5236G looked like when I dropped her off at Tejas AeroServices to what the final design looks like moments after the masking was removed.

I was told that everyone was breathless as they started pulling off the paper and tape. If you recall from my previous postings, the paint process is done in reverse order (base to top). Not even the painters have seen the outcome of their work until today.

Yes, you have to scroll to the bottom of this post to see it!

Let the drum roll begin...

The Tejas Team is cleaning her up, assembling the flight controls and replacing all of the hardware with stainless steel. 252Q should be ready to fly by Friday!
