The Killer Kaos is covered and painted. I used Tamiya Lexan spray cans to paint over the white Oracover. Before painting, I gently scruffed the Oracover with 1000-grit sandpaper, which makes it less glossy without scratching it.
Tamiya lexan spray paint covers well and is easy to work with.
To avoid paint seeping under the masking tape like shown above, here’s a trick I use:
Spray a coat of clear, flat paint first. If any clear paint bleeds under the tape, it won’t show, and it fills the edge so that the color coat will not bleed under.
A perfect result
The undercarriage looked completely hopeless.
I cut the legs and added a pair of Great Planes axels. It now sits lower and has a perfect stance with clearance for up to 12 inch props.
Tettra 55 mm wheels look great
I repainted an old field box to match
Next up is hooking up the control surfaces in the tail, mounting engine and pipe, and the tank plumbing.
