So I painted my shuttle.

Well this was my first time to spray paint anything of importance. I think it turned out pretty good for my first time, with $28 worth of materials and about 4 hours of my time. Took about 2 hours to sand and primer and tape it off and about another 2 hours to paint it. I should have waited about an hour between each coat but I got impatient and waited about 15 mins. I learned alot fromt his though, im probably gonna sand it all down and put some crazy design in it this time.


The major problem was the paint bonding with the tape, and peeling off with the tape. But I figured out how not to do that anymore. Also right when I was done putting the final coat on a blade of grass landed in it . so i had to sand down a side and repaint it.


So tell me what you guys think

BTW: the case used to be polished aluminum.

Edit: whoops I guess the pics are to big to upload, anyone wanna host them for me?

Im pretty sure im gonna sand it all down, and have my roommate use some pen stripe tape or what ever and make a niffty pic, and then tape it up and spend about a week on the painting instead of 4 hours.
