#MonsterMarch3 Week three progress. More camo!
So I managed to get the second pass of masking tape on all of the armor panels. Whew...it's a lot of itsy bitsy tape to cut and stick. I'm excited to get the last coat of paint on so I can see how things came out. The pieces above will all get a good dry brush of Vallejo Steel before I lay down the final camouflage coat of Vallejo Air Deep Sky. here's a bit more detail on all the panels now that they have the final masking in place.
In the close-ups you can see the first layer of tape under the paint. The new masking is carefully laid down on areas that have not been taped yet, or positioned to overlap existing tape. This approach varies the pattern and ensures that lifting off the bottom (first) masking layer doesn't also lift all the second layer of color. The top (second) masking layer is meant to preserve the second layer of paint as a "middle" later of interesting shapes which may be partially covered by the top layer of shapes (which is actually the result of the first layer of masking). Ugh...it makes one's head hurt to think about it.
I still wonder if the pattern is too sparse. It is definitely more dense than the first attempt on the Reavers, so we'll see. Check back in Thursday or Friday when I post up the official week three status post to see how things came out! I hope to have all of the tape off by then and the final camouflage pattern will be revealed.
Cheers and Happy Gamming!
