Re: C-17 Our first Build !

Got it. I’m going to try a “flexi sander” fairing board. (Was a gift). It’s supposed to save on fairing compound. Apparently you still have to apply the faring compound with the trowel and I can see going in different directions there then you scrape over evening it out with the longboard before it ...

https://forums.bateau2.com/app.php/gallery/image/5336/source I finally got through all the little household emergencies this week so I was able to put the first full coat of fairing on the port lower hull panel.
