Wolf,

I was going to ask you if you had added any additional graphics when you did your Super Mark II. Now I don't need to.

Super Mark II is in need of refinishing after the orange spray paint came out in chunks and marred the finish.

Wolf,

What brand was it? Was it a fresh can?

Must not have been Allis Chalmers orange or it would have been perfect according to Doug in the old rocket list.

I hate it for you. It's one of those deals where as soon as you shot it, you knew you should have done a test shot on some scrap cardboard. I'm guilty as well.

I did test it first. Have a can of Valspar "gloss island orange" spray paint that's a few years old. This was a "known good." I shook the hell out of it and tested it on cardboard. The color was a pretty close match to the Astron Mark in the Estes 1971-1972 catalogs. The very next shot on the Super Mark II came out like sandpaper. I'm not too upset.
