MORE COLOR-LESS SHINE!

 

I painted the Silver details with a Silver Marking Pen. Then I did a little touch up with Silver paint and a brush.

Next I added some color to the body. I hand painted the Red and Black stripes using masking tape to keep the lines straight. That worked pretty good but I did get some paint coming under the tape in a few places. So I used some of the Flat Yellow and painted over the mistakes.

Then I sprayed the Wings with Testors Dullcoat.

Next I sprayed the body parts with Dullcoat.

METAL MESH!

 

I bought this Metal Mesh at a Crafts Store. It comes in many styles and colors. I cut a piece and glued it into the Hyperspace Supercharger.

I also cut some Metal Mesh to fit the underside of the body. Extra Mesh on the sides so I could glue it easier. Zap-A-Gap Glue and Baking Powder were used to hold the Mesh in place.

Here is the Hyperdrive Supercharger with the Mesh in place.

Here is the underside with the Mesh glued in place.

GLUEING IT TOGETHER NOW!

 

I glued the Wings and Body Halves together with Zap-A-Gap. Here it is mounted on Piano Wire.

Rear View. The Hyperdrive Supercharger isn't glued in place yet.

I've gotta say Ira, with this amount of imagination on a ficticious build I'm curious to see what the "stuff that exists" builds are like (i.e. cars, planes, and stuff like that) They've gotta be good!!
