It's easy. First I made the model in like 6 differeent pieces. I sprayed the top half white a couple of coats. Let it dry for a day, then I taped off the areas I wanted to remain white with masking tape and sprayed the rest green. Removed the tape and worked out the shading and highlights. Its easy- ever watch them Jesse-James have a motorcylce painted- same concept.

I know how to spray a falcon, my white never comes out that bright though, did you just leave it sprayed? or paint over again?

no, Idea there dont seem to be that many really active posters though, it's probably just the christmas season.

(what tape did you use?, my tape always sticks to tha paint ;D) but how many coats of what are on the white?
