It’s telling when you’re so deep into a limited-pallet project like this one that getting to paint a new color is exciting, but here we are.
Officers get red helmets, and the captain gets a red cloak lining to tie it all together. I decided to pain the red first almost entirely because it means I’ll be able to put together the captain’s sub-assemblies earlier in the process (the cloak isn’t glued on yet).
I also wrapped some paper around my desk lamp as a diffuser, and I think the picture’s turned out a bit better, although taking the photo after they’re sealed will be the clincher.
So that’s the black on thee guys – the plan is to finish the yellow on them tomorrow, finish them up entirely on Tuesday, do the black on the next and final batch on Wednesday, yellow on Thursday, finish on Friday. That’s a whole day of wiggle room, even!
