Afternoon ladies and gents,
New to the forum, so figured I'd start by posting one of my current projects.
I run CNC waterjet for work, and in the middle of a long cut, I got to thinking about what I wanted to do for my next build.
I decided on a diorama for HMLA-167, having a Whiskey model Cobra and a November model Huey on the flight line like they do for squadron pictures.
So, I drew it up and cut my base plate out of 1/4" aluminum.
debured all the rough edges from the cut,
went to wal-mart and picked up some of that textured spray paint. I cant remember the name of it off the top of my head, but the boss lady picked it, and i'm glad she did.
Let the couple of coats dry, then i had some old oil from the last time i did my truck. dipped some of it on an old rag, and went to town on the pl ate
