I learned that seven painting variables (gun quality, gun cleanliness, shop & surface cleanliness, distance, speed, overlap and spray angle) must be combined in just the right way to assure a flawless paint job.  The only way to achieve the perfect paint job is to PRACTICE painting.  

Main Wings - (Port) I painted too fast and ended up with orange peel that I had to sand.  Brian, my mentor, painted it a second time.  (Starboard)  My gun clogged and ruined the perfect surface.  Brian painted it a second time.

Ailerons - I painted.  Statically induced dust particles settled on the surface.  I sanded. Brian painted.

Canard's Top Surface - I taped off the bottom surface and painted the top.  It came out flawless! The bottom surface is to be painted brown.
