PML Lunar Express Build, Part 16, Paint!
I went to three different stores to find the Futurama colors.
In the past I didn't have great luck with Valdspar but they had the closest light green color. Valdspar seems to take forever to dry!
Rusto 2X had the best dark green.
The model is sprayed a light green overall.
Here's how it looked after the first light coat.
Light sanding with 400 grit followed each light coat.
A final heavier coat went on last.
This semi-gloss Valdspar paint did dry evenly and fairly quickly.
