Testing the Indoor Spray Painting Booth

Once I got my indoor, positive-pressure spray paint booth built, it was time to test it out. I started with the white undercoat on the Quest Superbird.

The Superbird is built, and looks great. I am behind on the editing and posting of the video build series of that rocket, but you can see the first several videos here.

After the first test spray, I realized the booth would need a bit of tweaking before I used it again. Here's the video of the first test.

I don't want to give any spoilers, but I will say the kinks did get worked out, as you'll see in the next two videos. The Superbird turned out surprisingly well, considering the trouble I had while building it.

And I've moved on to finish the paint job on the Sky Wolf. Once the decals and rail buttons are on, that rocket will also be ready to go!

Having this booth set up has certainly made it easier for me to get a nice paint job on my rockets, and more convenient for me to paint when I want to. More details - and video - to follow soon!
