Estes Photon Probe #3026 Build, Part 11, Paint Choices
The older kit face card had the middle section painted pink. I do have pink spray paint but it's not a dark enough shade for me. I decided to go with orange like the Photon Disruptor.
Here's the paint mask Scotch tape being pulled. The line was very clean.
While the older Photon Probe was shown with a pink center, the newer reissue kit had purple.
This is the second build ready for decals.
The older kit decals are on the top. They included the additional decals shown on the right side.
While these weren't on the newer decal sheet the re-issue kit instruction picture still shows them.
No more "Screw in the screw eye and remove. Squirt glue into the hole and re-insert the screw eye."
The new instructions have you simply screw it into the balsa shoulder. No glue!
I'd feel better knowing the screw eye was glued in.
