Estes Equinox Build Part 12, Balsa Filling and Tube Trim
Tung wood problems again!
This is the fin unit from the Estes Equinox.
Even after primer/filler I had to fill the new open wood pores with some CWF.
This is getting ridiculous!
The tabs are still showing after gluing, filling, priming, sanding, filling, priming, sanding, white undercoat and gray color coat.
The new jet tubes got color coats of Testor's Master Modeler Gunmetal Gray.
I've learned with the Testor's spray to use many light coats, without a final heavier coat.
The open ends still show the brown interior.
The ends and some of the reachable interior got hit with a Sharpie pen.
This just finishes things off so the brown inside isn't so noticeable.
