It's a nice day.. and I've got two models prepped for spraying rattle-can primer-coats outdoors.. and brushing some acrylic-enamel to small-parts indoors.

PAINTING-2019  20190413

Note; the zip-seal bags which contain hdwe. for both models. It's how I keep track of W.I.P. builds. I keep dated "chicken-scratch" notes on the models, drawings.. spare-parts, alternate parts.. etc.

Looking good. I like your organization methods. I always thought of doing it like that, but than I also like when cleaning my building table trying to figure out what goes where..... Very Happy

Hey Chancey! My organizational-methods are purely selective.. My workbenches are terribly cluttered. I choose what to organize by necessity. When I look around my shop.. I get bewildered. I wouldn't know where to start, if I chose to (or had to..) do a "complete" re-org. Lots of coffee.. and a long-weekend just for starters.. Laughing

I put-together a hanging swivel-fixture for mounting under the deck.

A short piece of furring-board with a wood-screw through the center. Mini-bungee-hooks attach to screw-eyes which are used to hang the parts to be painted.

yada yada... just a few white-primer coats applied to the airframe of my "Fulcrum Flyer".. and the body of my "Rodd-E-Liminator" tether-car. It was a beautiful afternoon here in Northern Rhode Island.. 68 degrees Fahrenheit.. pretty much until sundown.

I had to resist the temptation to spray base-coats onto these models.. even though the base-coats are also white. Tomorrow's another day.. and the weather is forecast to mirror today's.. (fingers crossed..)

So... I decided to spray (fog) some additional-coats of rattle-can/clear-gloss polyurethane onto "two" of the speed-models that I built for the CEF contests. My F8F-2 Bearcat (Rare Bear) and my "T33-Dee"... model.

I'm not concerned with the weight of these two airplanes. They're basically drag-racers. The extra coats of poly are to help seal/preserve the finish and any decals.  

Tonight I've prepared to paint "wheels" for a few of these models. I made a simple paint-fixture to mimic the 1/16" and 1/8" diameter axles that the wheels will be fitted to.

Another option is this "paint on a stick" idea I got from Kim.

Just screw it to the engine mount on any Cox (and some others) .049 reedie and spray. No runs guaranteed as your constantly moving the plane around.

Stick the wheels on a conical tip dowel. No paint runs any, like as rsv1cox says. It is easy to remove wheels after painting.

It's heavier than I'd like Joe. 3.5oz./99gr. and that's without the engine and hdwe. It'll be close to 6oz. when it's done..
