OK, this came out pretty good. Have I mentioned how much I love the metallic paints? The mask line came out shockingly clean, and the silver looks fantastic with the cranberry. I might have gone a bit heavy with it, because there's more of a paint dam than I expected. Gonna have to figure out how to rub that down a bit without actually *sanding*. Anyone have any suggestions? While pulling the masking tape off, I didn't get the most encouraging feeling about whether the silver paint would work well as decal paint. Too much flex and the paint disintegrated into metal dust. So I think that before I silver the rest of the rocket, I'm going to experiment with a piece of decal paper and the silver paint, and see if it, you know, actually works. If not, I can still mask the whole paint job (although not that little nose panel, although it may not be necessary anyway.
