Beauty of a finish on the Hellcat, looking forward to the FW even more now.

Question regarding the finish. I read so much concerning weight and painting, but you've done a nice solid coat. You use Model Master, I assume through an AB, have you even weighed it before and after?

I use Vallejo acrylics myself on static models. I lightly sanded some Aerolite (Solite) and sprayed it with a Dark German Camo and it held fine, but I really can't see the coat of paint adding any more weight than what I removed with the sanding.

I get if you're hitting a 1400mm foamie with a rattle can or brushing on Behr latex on it, the weight will add up, but Tamiya, MM or Vallejo through an AB on a non permeable surface?
