Default Estes Crossfire ISX in an non-typical paintjob

And now for something rather different: An Estes Crossfire ISX in Testors color shift spray paint (Purple Sunrise color)... unfortunately it has no decals, as the standard ISX decals didn't look good on it, but frankly I don't think it really needs decals.

Thanks! I suspect it'll be fairly easy to see as it goes up.

That looks great! I try to pick up a can of Testors or Model Master paint every visit to Hobby Lobby. I was surprised to see how many different colors are available in Color Shift. Iíll have to try one.
