Estes Galactic Taxi #1914 Build Part 11, Nozzle Trim

The back end of the fairings didn't get paint on the inside corners.
Some of the same yellow used on the body was sprayed into a small cup. I went back with a brush and  hit all the light areas.

The nozzle was also yellow. I wanted to add a bit more trim.
I pulled out the old roll of Contact blackboard material. It's an adhesive backed flat black vinyl.

A strip was cut and rolled around the exposed engine tube.
TIP: Lift the engine hook and start the trim strip under the hook. After rolling around the tube, the end of the wrap was pressed under the engine hook hiding the joint seam.
Once in place, the engine hook pressure will keep the ends stuck down.
