Of course, it's not Summer here any more so the lack of warmth isn't helping but it's likely going to be another day or two before I feel comfortable applying the vinyl decals without too much paint sticking to the paper as I pull away.
I used my Sharpie metallic silver pen to color the rivet lines...Looks fantastic! Holy cow I was pleased with the initial results. FMS has these rivets raised in the mold so all I did was lightly circle the tops of the "bumps" and man-oh-man, that alone makes it look like a composite!
I'll take photos tomorrow or Sunday depending on weather and when I get the decals applied.
If THIS plane crashes from a non-pilot error I am going to throw up.
Aros can you be specific on the paint you got from Home Depot, brand, name, etc. Is it from a spray can? I'm usually concerned with those because they are petroleum based and attack the foam. Any info would be appreciated thanks!
