Default Snarky build...

Well my awesome wife gifted me a Snarky for Christmas so I thought I would start a build thread. I work slowly but will post as I get into it. Looks a little tricky, letís see how it goes.

Take your time. A good build thread always takes a little time.

The Snarky is a fun build. I built this one several years ago. Use a fresh, sharp blade on the miter cuts and make several passes and you'll be fine.

I like how you went with matte black on the underside. Thinking ahead about the order in which I paint this thing has me considering doing the same. It is going to be tough to spray a gloss coat inside the scoop without paint running, and how am I going to tape off the rocket after the gloss white to paint the red inside there. Would be way easier I think to paint inside the scoop first and then tape that off to paint the rest white, although color wise that is backwards of what I would normally do. Hand painting the underside last seems like an easier alternative and with matte black I can get a decent result. Hmm....
