So...... are you saying I should go ahead and get that EDF ordered and on it’s way?! 🤔
Hopefully once summer hits I can use up some of my comp time and plow through my back log of projects. I say this every year, but who knows, maybe it will actually happen this time.
Anyway, back to the Eagle, I was looking at doing the classic Air Force grey paint as a future squadron skin after the VA skin and from the top it looks like it could work...
As you can see from the bottom though, the illusion breaks pretty quick with the stark white contrast. I was thinking I might be able to make a few small "stickers" to at least cover the intakes inlets and the rear fuse plates that could tone down the whiteness without actually doubling my workload painting a skin on the inside of the airframe. I think it will work and it will open up more paint scheme options later.
Another thing I have not considered is most of you build with the FT browns stuff, that could really throw it off.
Yeah, that tears it, I am going to plan on making a sheet of self adhesive label paper you can cut and stick on to cover the back side areas. A sheet with a base coat color at the very least. Once I get done I may even add some details to it.
Back to work for me though. I have to get the panel lines done today at the very least.
