I'm in the process of painting my MLC in ROTJ colors. I did the blue part using 3 different paints (Sail Blue misted with Sky Blue and Metallic Blue) and it turned out great. I then taped off the pack and did the yellow/orange parts. But when I peeled the tape up some of the blue paint came off with it.
I wanted to add in that I had laid down a metallic chrome undercoat. I was having problems with the paint not sticking to it due to the paint dust. I resolved it by putting on 2 or 3 coats of the clear coat.
I relatively new to these techniques so I'm probably just making a noob error. I was thinking of laying a clear coat over the blue this time to keep it from peeling up. Anything other suggestions, tips or admonishments are welcome.
