black paint

More painting today, just masked up the bottoms of the wings, will be laying down gloss black

I’m just dividing the bottom in ¼ chequer as Sean had this on a wing last year at Manila, I liked the look & it was easy to see ----I need all the help I can get with this as it won’t present a big profile in the air

I have the corner over a servo hole as its going to have carbon covers on the servos later & the LE has the tape running along the very front of the wing
After some measurements & marking with tape I laid down some fine line tape then masking tape & news paper to cover the whole wing ready for spraying this was a bad move as when removing the paper later it had left ink on the white paint –grrr! , it will clean off when I buff it out

I started to spray & had some trouble with the hvlp gun (cheap of EBay) & I found that there was a blockage in one of the fan holes & the gun was pulsing ,after re-cleaning it all was fine

I laid the black down with 2 very light coats just a dusting then followed by 2 full wet coats with about 3 or so mins between each coat
The paint was left for about 1 hour before removing the masking ,it has come out good with some gloss, ,Ill be polishing it up later after the top sides are painted & putting a coat of clear on it

That’s it for now
