Okay, I think all of the construction bits are done. I have to do some last-minute cutting of a couple of bits I forgot, and I should spackle some seams that I forgot as well, but in the end, I think it's done.

Primer is mixed for tomorrow. PVA primer is translucent white, sort of like a cross between white glue and latex paint. I added some black pigment to it to provide a sort of neutral gray base (tinting primer is an old trick I learned from watching Trading Spaces back when I had cable), and it helps to see where the primer has been laid down because it contrasts so well with the pink and blue of the styrofoam.

I had to cut a couple of details. Ones that I really didn't want to cut, but there's just no time left.

Tomorrow there will be some final sanding and last-minute touch-ups, but all systems are go for priming. And it looks as if the weather fairy will be cooperating.

I'm exhausted. Trying to do a last-minute push, but I'm last-mile-of-the-marathon spent.

Because you know I have so much experience with marathons.
