Cool "A Darker Shade of Gray"

... with apologies to Procol Harum

Then I slipped home for lunch and sprayed a coat of the "newer, darker gray" on the lower section of the Prometheus. (Note the A/B side-by-side comparison below.) That's *exactly* the shade of gray I was looking for.

(tapping foot impatiently) Okay, where are they? (realizing) Oh, I have to *wait.* *Now* I get it...

So, you and your rocket had a "nooner", eh?
As for my pics, they're taken, but not downloaded. The 1:1 Star Snoop, upscale Missile Toe and fully decaled Q-Modeling Rogue. I bought a bunch of retro decals from Excelsior last month when I bought the cluster mounts for the next wave of big Goonys. I think I might use some of them to dress up the Semroc Micron a little, so I may have that ready to go also.
It really killed me not to be able to fly this weekend. Sunday was beautiful and today was better.

Much better contrast between the upper and lower sections.

Just needs those decals, now...

Here in the balmy South, the wind was up this weekend; today it is raining, the temperature is dropping, and I'm stuck with another lingering cold bug that just makes me icky all over. (Technical term -- ICKY. Means feeling generally blech and urrgghhh from head to foot...)

The up-side to all of this nastiness is I was able to get the building done on my SEMROC Recruiter and ARCON, and BARCLONE Lynx and Clipper. It's good therapy...
