I prefer purple, but white appears to work best with the flame color fade. Start with white, if you don't like it go over with purple, if you don't like that give it a coat of black.
Double "THIS!!!!" plus another plus 1. :surprised:plus 1 it fades into the design better.
You could easily fade the nose as you described using rattle cans. I do it all the time. The secret is do it all at once. top coats all while they are fairly wet with maybe 10 minutes of tack time between each and then shoot the clear on afterwards waiting maybe 30-45 minutes...Here's a thought - is it possible to paint nose cone itself with a fade?
White matching decal sounds good. Purple looks good.
Would it be possible to have cone white overall then airbrush purple at tip fading to white about 1/3 of the way back?
I dunno, the more I think about that, overall white might be better.
That was the problem I was having with the purple, finding a good match. Fortunately there are a few different shades of purple on the wrap so I should be able to find something close if I decide on that color. I will more than likely leave it white for now, I can always change it later.Saayy. That's a nice rocket. I have something like that in mind my self. You got a sim file I can gander at?
Purple...If you can get it to match the vinyl. If the color is off, it may look out of place. Black or white will match much easier.
I have a friend who does custom hydrodipping on guns. I've always wanted to do it on a rocket.Get all three colours, and do this:
(I plan to do at least one this summer!!)
