2 passes of F9 on left fuselage

This is what 2 passes of F9 looks like. There will be orange trims and the whole underside of the fuselage will be gray (3 in 1 RAL 7035). I have seen some do the F9 polishing on the plates before assembly. That might be a good idea, particularly on the underside of the wing/fuselage. I'm not totally convinced, because curved surfaces are much easier to polish than straight surfaces.

According to "David A" at, polishing is like: The way I tell when it is sufficiently polished is when the hazy image of Joe cool pilot becomes a sharp clear image of an old fart.
