    My Painted RussRep Rocket...

    Here's my freshly painted russrep rocket. I'm happy with the paintjob(all of the black), but I'm not very happy with the misted-on grey. The arrow shows were the freakin' paint chipped off while I was doing the wash and mist...

    I think it looks good too. We buy brand new shiney parts to paint them to look abused. Gotta love it!

    Deadbolt - that looks fantastic, can you explain how you painted (a little step by step breakdown).

    Isn't it odd how we take something, make it look like complete crap, and say it's beautiful?

    Sure man,

    Step 1: I completely spray-painted every piece ultra-flat black.
    Step 2: Next I scraped out all the details with an exacto knife.
    Step 3: Then I sprayed on a light coat of satin polyurethane clear coat.
    Step 4: Then, with a kinda dark grey enamel model paint, I brushed it (in small portions) on each piece, Then I emedietly started dabbing the areas that are painted with the grey with a paper towel, until it made the black look kinda grey. I didn't put any grey on the little fin things on the middle piece, exept the very bottom fins on each side. All of the top fins were left "un-washed"
    Step 5: With some silver spray paint, I very lightly misted the entire rocket, but I sprayed a little more on the bottom side of the rocket.(You cant really see the silver at all in the picture...damn camera)
    Final Step: I clear coated it again, and then the rocket is complete!

    Thanks Guys!

    Thanks guys! When I can get ahold of a better camera, I'll post some new pictures. These pictures dont really show the detail very well.
