Advice on painting the "rust ring" on the TOS Enterprise saucer
Posted by mach71 on Wednesday, December 11, 2019 12:21 PM

I'm at this stage in my big PL E.

 

How have builders been painting this?

 

I'm trying to decide if it should be a light/dull red mist over sprayed with hull color or a fine shading powder sealed with a clear coat.

 

Any thoughts? Other ideas? 

 

Also has anyone done the measurements for masking the area? I don't want re-invent the wheel.

 

Thanks.
