Odd'l Rockets Goony G-16 Build, Part 8, White Paint and a Fix TIP
This is an easy one to paint, it's all gloss white.
After one coat I sanded down any rough fillets and glue blobs.
To keep paint out of the front end of the tube a wrap of masking tape went on the inside end.
The nose cone was painted separately because the Rusto 2X seems to take much longer to dry on plastic.
To hold the nose cone, masking tape was set down on one edge of some copy paper. This was wrapped around the nose cone shoulder.
I couldn't get a smooth surface on the bomb support sides, they are hard to reach with sandpaper.
So I cheated!
TIP: A piece of white decal paper was cut to size and set over the rough support surface.
This isn't something that works all the time, this is in an area nobody would probably notice. But it did cover and smooth out the rough side some.
Here's how it came out. Much better, not perfect but better.
I followed up with some Future clear acrylic applied with a Q-tip.
