Painted Periscope

Time to paint the main periscope body!

I wiped down the outer surface with acetone to get it nice and clean.

While not necessary, I decided to mask the inside of the periscope body to avoid getting paint all over the place in it.

When I paint with white paint, I usually go with gray primer, so I can distinguish the paint from the primer. I'm using the same Rustoleum Satin White that I used for R2's body. Only one coat this time, though.

This doesn't look very white, but it is. It was indeed a gray day.

I'll let this dry for a while before working with it.
