Ordo Septenarius,

It is a little tough to see your progress with the small image.

I checked out your BLOG and you can post the same thoughts hear, as you will get more of a response than a link that someone won't click.

Interesting idea using Silly Putty as a masking tool. Did you experience any oil left over? That was a problem I encountered with my Elysian FW aircraft.

Good luck with your project.
