Went to Lowe's this morning, apparently they no longer sell Valspar spray paint!
Criminy.
Only Krylon and Rusto.
So I picked up a few cans of Krylon paint.
Hoping they don't clog up like Rusto.

Sprayed the second color on the Kram last night.
Forgot that the fins are supposed to be orange, so will have to mask and spray a third time later.

Reshot the orange with the Krylon stuff.

It's very fast drying.
Decals in a day or two.

One was shot in the afternoon with natural sunlight coming through the window.
The second one was shot at night with fluorescent lights on.
The couch is a maroon color.
Or maybe it's a secret new color changing fabric?

Decals are on.
The decals are thin and old, and the big wrap around kept breaking apart.
Mistakes are on the other side of the pic.
Anyway, Kram is done.

Gee’hod

Probably one of the less politically correct rockets, and a little worse for wear. Had to re-attach the RPG, in doing tore a decal.

Some close ups before I ripped a decal.

Note to self: next time put a ruler up next to close ups.

If anyone finds or clones this build, either put the RPG on the wing or use either basswood of reinforced balsa for the dorsal fin and reinforce the RPG attachment, per my experience and on some RocketReviews posts, it frequently is, I guess we should say, accidentally deployed.
