More Rockets Mach 10 Build Part 10, Paint!



The customer wanted a different look than the Centuri Air Force silver.
The German Huckebein looks a lot like the Mach 10 design.





I started with an overall olive drab. I used Testor's Model Master spray paint.








The yellow wing tips and nose ring were masked with Scotch tape.
The tape line on the left was wrapped over the bottom. Another piece of tape joined the ends of the bottom mask.




The rest of the model was covered with a plastic grocery bag and the gloss yellow was shot.

  1. Yep... (nodding) as I suspected. When you responded with "Wait until you see the decor the customer wanted..." in response to the MiG-15 similarity, the next guess would've something that falls into the "Luft '46" category.
