VAS Specter v3 Build – Part 2 : Painting

Before gluing and laminating i needed to paint the pieces. I decided on a metallic shimmer color for the wingtips, nose lid, and tail coroplast. Jeremiah said that with the black epp you should apply a white base first, so i put on some white with a satin finish. 2 coats of white followed by 2 coats of metal. No reaction at all with the krylon “for plastic” paints. The epp soaks up the paint pretty well and with all the “imperfections” or texture of the cut pieces you cant tell at all if you get some over spray or put on too much paint. The texture of the epp makes a pretty nice looking paint job IMO.
