Default V2 Ready for Paint

Paint prep consisted of lots and lots of sanding......

320 grit 3M paper and a ton of elbow grease until all surfaces were nice and smooth.

Cleaned up with a wipe down with rubbing alcohol soaked paper towels followed by a gentle wipe down with a tack cloth.

Chose 2 coats of PlastiKote sandable primer followed by wet sanding with 320 and then 1000 grit sandpaper.

Plan is to paint the post war White Sands #2 Yellow and Black roll pattern. Decided to try painting the entire rocket the gloss yellow and then tape it off for the gloss black.

Here's where we got this weekend:
