Having Fun in the Garage

The A-6 Intruder has a lot of white paint, about half of the kit. When I painted the external fuel tanks during the summer it took 4 coats of spray paint to get it right. So now I am painting the under wings and landing gears but it is currently below freezing with a bit of snow from earlier this week which means I have to spray indoors. Since I do not have a spray booth my only option is to do it in my garage due to the strong fumes from the Tamya spray cans that I am using. The garage having recently been painted is very clean and is pretty much dust free which traditionally would have been a concern. I bumped up the temperature from 12 celsius to 18, got my first coat done and I hope it will only take a total of 3 and not 4 coats.

Flight of the Raptor

Tonight I finished the final touches of the F-22 Raptor which included some last minute touch-ups and the application of the stickers which Casey preferred that I do. I placed it on Casey's dresser next to his other completed kits, wonder what his reaction will be tomorrow morning...
