Thank you sir. At least you got in before the nose cone.How have I missed this build thread?!!! Neil, this is absolutely incredible work. I need to re-read every post and take notes.
Agreed, this is standard procedure for all the Rusto 2x paints that I use (although I believe this will be the first "Ultra Matte" variety I've tried). Actually I don't think I've ever waited less than 4 days before next coat, more typically a week. Meanwhile, the sniff test is a fantasy for this stuff; it still has noticeable smell for... weeks? Months? Eons?Recoat in 10-15 minute intervals, but after an hour must leave 48 hrs before Next coat or masking.
That Is Not A Suggestion
Oh, I thought he was commenting on the particular color.Oops, I was trying to quote Bruiser. New forum tools are fine, just take some getting used to.
Just felt he needed a warning if he wanted to try it. I know you've used this stuff for awhile.
It certainly is not scale. On all the pictures I've seen of this missile, every one has a unique paint job. So now there will be one more.Might not be scale with the mix of decals but I think the pic looks great.
Soon. You'll hear about it here, I promise.Did you get the new paint on?
And now, at long last, I can answer "yes".Did you get the new paint on?
It's a bit lighter, but that should be better for the inkjet-printed decals. We'll see soon enough! (I hope) I'm most pleased that it seems to be a much better paint job than before; everything seems pretty smooth. I'm sure there will be imperfections as always, but it won't be a piece of garbage like my last attempt...That's great news! It looks like the same gray in the pic three replies before this.
That's what I was expecting, but instead I got this:I had serious trouble with simple Rusto 2X matte on my Saturn V decals. But it was -really- matte. Almost gritty.
You cruel taskmaster.The logo looks good on it whether it's dud or live. Helps educate people.
Speaking of nose.....
You know, you had about a HUNDRED opportunities to warn me about that before now.it's going to be difficult to put on the nose cone with "No Support or Handling" beyond that line
Indeed. This would have been a much different project if this missile were fully documented somewhere.Trying to decipher and investigate those markings was kind of fun
