I learned that seven painting variables (gun quality, gun cleanliness, shop & surface cleanliness, distance, speed, overlap and spray angle) must be combined in just the right way to assure a flawless paint job. The only way to achieve the perfect paint job is to PRACTICE painting.
Main Wings - (Port) I painted too fast and ended up with orange peel that I had to sand. Brian, my mentor, painted it a second time. (Starboard) My gun clogged and ruined the perfect surface. Brian painted it a second time.
Ailerons - I painted. Statically induced dust particles settled on the surface. I sanded. Brian painted.
Canard's Top Surface - I taped off the bottom surface and painted the top. It came out flawless! The bottom surface is to be painted brown.
