Wxcept for decals (and LAUNCH LUGS,) the Alien Invader is flight ready. I'm hoping to get it flying next Saturday, but weather and work could still throw a monkee wrench into things. I decided to paint it in a non traditional scheme. It's Valspar Bumble Bee Gloss up front, but the back is a Model Master blue/black that I was hoping would turn out darker. It applied almost purple at first, but darkened to an almost bruise-like blue. Not as dark as I would have liked, but it's distinctive and it makes the Day-Glo inside the tubes really pop.
(Also got a new grill. All is well in Kentucky right now.)
