Thank You. The quality of the materials inspired me to take my time. :)
Usually I don't fill spirals, and only one coat on fins and nose cones.
This time I filled, sanded, filled, sanded, maybe three times. I really wanted
them to look really good. As for the painting, I guess I got lucky. :confused2:
I'm not very good at painting.

I was lucky in that I still had cans of the old style Krylon.
