    Well
    I Sanded down the blue (that had gobs of silver paint on it)
    Reshot the silver
    put a clearcoat over that
    Then twisted my ankle so badly that I can't walk.
    Now I'm waiting to recover.


    I'll have to dothe whole :jet pack all over again anyway.

    ok, it's finally finished.(except the stabilizer & beacon)
    I sanded the blue back down
    masked it off
    painted it silver
    used the "mustard" technique
    painted over that with the blue again
    pulled off the masking tape ,
    AND THE DECALS PULLED OFF WITH THE TAPE!!!!!!!!!

    scrubbed off the mustard
    repainted the now missing decals by hand
    painted a few topical scratches
    weathered it with a wash of acrylic black & windshield washer fluid

    misted the whole thing with black

    That looks incredible! I have just started painting mine and ran in to a problem with the blue paint peeling off with the tape, too. I have to repaint those sections but I like how my yellow/orange areas turned out sort of pre-dirty.

    You may want to try a hair-dryer when removing the tape...removing slowly of course....works in most cases.

    S1P..LOOKS amazing....even after your touch-up work...

    Where do you buy MLC stuff. I've looked a long time and found nothing.

    Nice Painting Job, BTW.

    I am considering painting a jet pack but it looks extremely difficult. How do you guys achieve the scratches/weathering on the jet pack, especially the blue parts?. I would love it if someone came out with a template which could be placed over the blue parts to replicate the scratches.
