For purple metallic, over spray ain't the way

I decided to test over spraying the Metalcast purple metallic with the silver basecoat.  I took the top section of my Ringer and gave it a try. I figured the 'finish' on the yarn-wrapped cone looked funny anyway so I couldn't make it look any worse. In fact, I over sprayed the cone too. The results: meh. I am unable to keep the overspray totally uniform and I'm not sure the look would look good even if I was able to.  So. the Resistor 224 got a couple of silver vinyl pin stripes and an MDRA decal.  The kit's decal will start soaking shortly.  I'll then shoot a clear coat or two.  Photos when finished...
