Do you sand the primer on a model like that? Seems like it would be nearly impossible to do around all those little details.

Default SA-5 Painted

My SA-5 for NARAM is almost complete. I just finished putting all the parts together. The four strap on boosters are held in place with small brass screws. The small fins on these boosters are also held in place with the same screws. The mid size fins at the rear simple push into a keyed slot. The main fins are currently just pushed in place and then pushed down into their key slot. I may reach in from the inside of the model and add some Aleene's Tacky Glue to the upper screw head of each fin. This should hold the fin in place but still allow them to be removed it needed. As seen in the photo it weighs in at 31 ounces. I still need to add the screw on motor retainer, Elastic Shock Cord and Large Mylar Chute that I still Need to make. I used Createx paint for the color. I think it's going to need another week to fully dry.

I used a iwata Eclipse airbrush to spray the paint on with.

A WEEK for the paint to dry ?
Sheesh...I don't like using paint that takes hours to dry, let alone a week.

Looks really good.
Interested to hear the flight report from NARAM and what your final power choice is.

When I say a week to dry that means fully cured. You can easily pick up the model the next day.

As for decals, No decals. I specifically picked a display model to replicate since it has no decals. The military version ready for flight has TONS of stencils ALL over the place. I simply didn't want to go there.
