I have to say, Im impressed by this guy..... If you look at the top pic, he had sprayed the white base for the red, Then (this is why I'm impressed) He peeled off the fine line tape along the white edge, I can tell this because of the black line,( carbon showing through)...

He then re applied his fine line along the white edge & re- masked before he sprayed the red....

Why you ask?? he has experience & it shows... If he were not to do it this way, when he peeled the fine line off after both colors were sprayed, you would see a slight white edge, because you are looking at a cross section of the layers of paint....

This is why its best to always hire a professional who knows what he's doing... Little things like this are what separate the Pro's from the Hobby guy in his garage.... Just FYI.... It's worth the money you spend..

Started to lay the base paint down on the tail you can see where the fading will start & go out towards the end...

Got some more progress done on the nose fairing, the custom nose flag will look like it has been torn away revealing the carbon fibre underneath...mind you it isn't finished yet but looking spectacular so far, still a little bit more detail has to go in there and then the clear...here are the steps on how it was done.
