Thought I would toss in my pics of my BobaMaker Jet Pack.
Used a combination of spray paints and airbrush:
I use the 3M blue painters tape, (i stick it to my shirt for an extra precaution) to prevent paint lift.
Also use paper over big expanses of are to minimize tape pull.
Windsor and Newton Masking fluid for the damage areas. (not shown ).
Notice my laptop, always good to have references on hand to be accurate.
Engine bell mask:
I used electrical tape for sharp egdes - like the lines for the bells. (the red/black are hand painted)
and now with the masking removed:
Still need to weather it more, add the black stripes, lettering, and clean up some of the overspray.
(sorry - but some of the colors are washed out in the pics - it looks darker and more accurate in real light)
My plan is to carve out the beacon to add a light to it, here is the start of that mini-project.
Used a drill press to drill it out (it's resin)
