Hope you have good flying weather soon. SC has a cold snap currently, but then my hangar is not up to flying status at present. Oh yes, I had a cinnamon roll so now I am sweeter.

Agreed, spackle, WBPU & silk is a great process. Although, spending a great deal of time on surface finish of FFF foamies kind of defeats the idea of a fast build and carefree attitude if you lose the plane due to fat thumbs. Therefore, I have adopted a minimalist approach to finishing my FFF scratchbuilds. I will apply an inexpensive, but high quality acrylic paint scheme using blue masking tape and a foam brush for a high visibility color scheme. I indulge myself by using a spray can of Minwax WBPU for a basecoat and topcoat.
