Getting the first float down

I was a bit scared to hoist the float out of the window of my attic, but with a little help from my friends everything went really smooth.

fairing float no. 1

For putting on fairing putty I used the method shown on the very nice site of Henny, a builder living in the Netherlands as well. First put on ridges of putty with a candy bag, then sand them down and use the ridges as a guide for putting on the bulk of the fairing putty.
