    I hope you show your technique on blending the different shade lines.  I did a Tricolor coursair and it was a bear.

    Wow, guess I'll be bringing my airframe to New York for its paint job. Press On Larry, it's looking some kind of good. Chic

    RE: Charlie Kellogg's TBM Avenger Build

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the compliments. First there is no blending of colors where they meet, hard line per the pix we downloaded from one of the Avenger sites.
    Peter, I'm not sure if you are ready for this anser about the paint and gun type but here goes..... The paint is Rustoleum in spray cans, all the grey/blue color was down with less than a can of spray paint, since that color only came in satin we had to gloss clear it after it was shot.
    The biggest problem with a 3 color paint scheme is the taping, you have to be very careful to get the tape right on the edge of the previous paint line. I would have done it differently but I defered to my build partner. Luckily I won't have that problem with my Trojan since it is a solo build which has it's good and bad points.
    Chic, you really need to make sure the plane is as clean as possible before shooting any of the final colors, we used white primer on the entire plane and sanded and sanded and still were not 100% happy with the resuklts. But as my cohort says "nobody is going to see it from 400 feet"
    Next week we start masking for the dark blue, I figure it will take us about 2 - 2-1/2 hours.

    Happy Flying
    Larry

    Yeah! My tigercat is painted in straight up rustoleum right out of the can! Love it. I think it looks great, Larry!

    Larry,
     I have heard great things about Rustoleum paints, did you use their clear coat and primer too.

    RE: Charlie Kellogg's TBM Avenger Build

    I'm interested in heating about the clear cost, too. I never likes the way the rustoleum clear would lay down, so I have always used minwax
    spar satin polyurethane for clear over both rustoleum and latex. easy to spray, not too glossy, holds up we'll!

    RE: Charlie Kellogg's TBM Avenger Build

    Hi guys,
    Used rustoleum for the primer, color and clear coat, depending on how many coats/heavy you apply will determine the glossiness of the finish.
    Hope this helps

    Wow, how are you guys getting such great finishes from SPRAY CANS. No runs, no drips, no errors. How is it done? Chic

    The trick is to spray light even coats, we had a few runs that we caught right away and used painters tape to remove. If you don't lay down too heavy a coat as you go there is MUCH less chance of drips. Be careful, if you use rustoleum paint read the directions about re coat times, they are different for the colors and clear...you get to choose I guess.

    I must say what a unique way to hold down the drop cloth, how many minutes did it take you to empty them to use as weights...
    Okay Chic you're up

    LOL... Your wife is quite sharp, let's hope she doesn't figure out what the build is actually going cost.

    RE: Charlie Kellogg's TBM Avenger Build

    A little off topic but I have just finished building this Aston Martin engine and is now ready for testing.
    Perhaps If I extend the cowl and add 400 lbs to the tail I can stuff it in the Avenger.

    I guess I'll join in on the painting status.

    Note that my beast will be a static model resting on a pole at the hangar where the full-size TBM will call home.

    lets see the Aston that it is going in!! Nothing like the sound of a British straight six howling down the back straight. Of course this is provided that the wonderful british electrical systems keeps everything with juice.
