Hey everyone with all the traveling I have been doing for work lately I have not had the chance to do a good WIP thread. With that I will work on doing them for this thread and the other thread that I recently started.
What do we have here? Yep that is right an FPH2 so folks they are shipping!!! This is a great lid and I would have to say it is my new favorite out of all the ones that I have painted. I really loved the Premium MR that FP did but this lid blows it out of the water. It has all the tell tell signs of an ESB lid the damage the wavy brow dam I love this lid. The new ear setup that Chris has done with these lids is great too and makes it so much easier to mount!! I also love the fact that the MQ-1 board is molded right in and the hollow stalk and range finder is killer as well. So As always I will be doing a fully layered ESB paint up on this.
So far I have been able to prime the lid out and get the gray blue paint on the back panels mask that out and have sprayed the whole lid silver. My next step will be to mask out that damage and then spray the entire lid in the dark gray. I will now more than likely have to start looking at colors for this as I am about out of SP Lark Dark Gray and it is one of those fabulous discontinued colors by Testors!!!! Once I get the gray laid down I will be moving on to the concrete color on the back.
On to the current pics. Which I will update with more when I get home tonight.
