I 've been commissioned by a memeber here (i'll let him disclose if he chooses) to paint another pack.
It's another MLC2 , painted using Lee's list of paints (mostly ;) )
The base is Krylon "Dull Aluminum"
with a clear coat or too to help keep the other colors from peeling
I only have the yellow done today.
The Yellow is Floquil "UP Armor Yellow"
The darker color misted around the edge is a custom mix of "UP Armour Yellow" mixed with Floquil "Boxcar" to darken it a little
I'll try to paint the other colors each day so the pack will be done by Friday.

I joined a Gym today
Too tired to mask again tonite
don't wanna rush it, so my timeline might be pushed back a little
I'll mask & paint the white tomorrow night
I let it dry for 24 hours between colors

Trudging on
the white has been sprayed
The White is Colorplace "Flat White" from Wal-mart
I'm sure any old white would do, just make sure it's flat
mrs.slave1pilot says the taping is the hardest part
:lovegotta love her:love

I cheated a little & left most of the tape on
I did the scratches on the white & remasked for the red
Now, Lee says to use "Boxcar" red for the Jet Pack.
I feel that it's too brown , so I use Poly S "Wisconsin Central Maroon"
I could only get it in gloss, so I have to use a few coats of Matte to dull it
here it is still taped up with 1 coat of "Matte finish" from Krylon

since it's been well over 100 degrees around here lately, I don't have to wait very long between coats to let them dry
I removed the tape from the red
I still need to remove the masking fluid & add some scratches
