Booster Painting

I painted 1 Booster today, Yeah BIG PROGRESS!!!

Anyway, It's showing some orange peel but I think when it dries it will be better.

I tried to leave the Aluminum showing where it's suppose to show the 1st time,

But it looked terrible, So I clean the booster and painted again. I'll have to hand paint the areas that need to be silver. :(

Just those grooves need to be painted if memory serves. They look great man!!! What paint are you using?>

It's Duplicolor Royal Blue.
I used it because it was easier than that Krider method.
So far, The people who have seen it in person really like it.

Thats what I use! The little spray cans right?

Calvin Thomas said...

Yep, You got it.
Just takes alot of them too do the job. And then the clearcoat.
The Orange peels eased off like I thought it would, So now I'm happy.
Now that's getting alittle odd that we used the same paint and have the same last name.
