Painted My Body

Got to paint my Green on my body Sunday WOW!!!! lots of wind so I lost a lot of Paint. But the results were very good ;o ).... I Painted all my Green and now I need to Paint the White and the pieces that go along with it. I also Painted the inside of my radar eye black, that took a little while had to put thin coats because the lens is plastic. I also put on all my Holos, whew that was scarey cutting my dome, was scared I was going to crack it. I also put my PSI lens in on the back of the dome, it fit like a glove no overlapping fit right in the hole. YESSS!!!! And yes Calvin blew up his Computer so he got my old Laptop and I got the new one,eewwww I hate windows vista. More to come. ;o )........

Painting My Dome Ring

Finally got 1/2 of my Dome Ring Painted ; )...
I will paint the other 1/2 in a couple of weeks if the weather allows it. I figured to give the paint time to dry before I tape up for the Green, it turned out really nice. Can't wait to see the finished product ;- )

Painting My Dome And Eye

This as you can tell is my first time with Glazing Putty can't you tell but the results will be great I hope. And now here is my Dome Calvin taped the lines for me and I did the Painting myself, pretty good job I think I've painted stuff many times so I have some experience I still have some touch up work to do but I can't touch it for a week for the Paint to cure. I don't want to mess it up. ; ).............

Prepping My Dome For Paint

Wow!!! Sanded for 4 hours yesterday so I can start painting my Dome ; ) It was a pain trying to stay in the lines I went out of line a couple of times but Calvin said he can get some stuff to take out the sand marks. I hope the letters don't show too much ; (..... It was major sanding trying to get as much off as I could so it won't show through the paint but, I know some will but thats ok as long as my paint turns out good. I'm going to try and Paint some tomorrow it supposed to warm up tomorrow ; )

Home Made Dome Ring

Here is the Dome Ring Calvin and I made to cover the outer ring on the sit and spin cutting the styrene and then putting the 3 pieces together was the easy part the hard part was, trying to get it to stick to the sit and spin . We did not know the sit and spin was larger than the wood ring so when we went to glue the ring to it, it would just pull off!!! So I gave up Sunday and then when I got home from work Tuesday, TA DA The ring was on ; ) He sanded the sit and spin for over 2 hours HEHEHE SUCKER!!!! I was to do that man saved my arm. I was so Happy I think I'm going to take him to the Outback Steakhouse this weekend. ; )

Outer Skins Mounted

Whoo Hoo!!!! Finally got my Front outer skins mounted today, I used 3M VHB Tape because when I was glueing my Inner skins I noticed that it was melting my skin a little too much. Leaving a couple of bubbles and I didn't like that so I taped them on, oh it took about 4 hours for me to tape everything and then today we put skins on not too bad for a Rookie so if there are any BOO BOO'S I did it!!! LOL. I kind of slid my coin slots in so I could see what it looks like, I also put on some pieces that will be White I just haven't Painted them yet. : )
