More Fine Tuning

After filling the weave and making things smooth, I've had to do some fairing work on a few trouble spots.  The main areas are on the hull's shear panels where the panels didn't quite line up in the scarffing process.  As I would run my hands along the hull, I would feel a definite bump in a few of these areas.  I used epoxy and micro-balloons as my fairing compound, and then used a long batton to get a fair curve on the hull.  After sanding these areas I was very happy with how everything smoothed out.
