Monogram 1/48th B-58 Hustler

This build was one of my first forays into the NMF finish using those buffable metalizers. After spraying the base color, I Futured the entire thing and then set about masking with Tamiya’s ‘yellow’ tape. By spraying different shades of Titanium, Aluminum, Magnesium and Gunmetal and then opting to buff them out or leave ’em ‘dull’, I could achieve varying contrasts in the finish. Those cotton gloves come in handy for shining up those hard-to-reach areas of the kit.
