Estes Gemini Titan #1978 Build, Part 6, Nozzles 2
Well, how can you mask something like this?
There is no way to get masking tape around the nozzles being so close and the nozzle bands are in the way!
I took the easy way out and used a permanent Sharpie marker.
The marker tip fits into the groove between the nozzle bands.
The nozzle on the right shows the first blackened band.
Here's how the finished nozzles came out.
The inside of the nozzles were "brush" painted using a Q-tip dipped in the silver/aluminum paint.
After the interior was painted and dried I made one more pass over the nozzle lip with the Sharpie.
