Since the area around the windows would be red, I masked those whole areas off, so that there wouldn't be a big paint build up at the window lines. I stuffed the body with tissue, so that overspray wouldn't get in, which is why the white only photo looks a little strange, that's not paint but white tissue showing through the clear body.

I then masked the red area, painted it, then added the black nose section. I think it's shaping up! Still have to add some red & yellow on the tail. Then, some custom decals and a tail rotor. Hope to have another update in the not too distant future.

Angelo,
That thing is spectacular. Nice work!
