Ok, more progress and more learning!!

I finally found a good and knowledgeable local place to buy paint supplies.

3M makes a paint cup solution that lets you paint upside down! I noticed that when I got the gun too sideways, paint would trickle from the little hole in the middle of the cup. This 3M system uses a collapsible cup liner that allows acute and inverted angle spraying. Quite handy for our models I thought!

Also, MrMatt suggested a paint cleaner called “Naked Gun”, wow what an awesome solution!! It’s like a paint gun brake cleaner!! It works like a champ and cleaning up my guns have been a breeze!!! Thanks Matt!

Thanks

I am looking for the edition Delgato was talking about with the how to paint articles. Is that the one you just showed above ? I have contacted the editor to know if they can point me out to the correct edition but haven't received any feedback so far, I just bought two SATA minigun 3300 HVLP along with Festo air filters etc. and I need badly some advice on how to paint. Thanks

Nice job my friend! I still think you're insane for doing that much masking. You deserve the cover and a centerfold for that kind of masochism!
