Judging by the quality of the reflections in the paint, someone could have done a better job of smoothing that puppy. Most would think how wonderful, airbrushing and all, but I see a lot of ripples in those reflections.

Hi PAR,

Could those ripples that you see be reflections of say the ceiling and other surrounding structures?

Also, I know that metal flakes were used in the paint, could that be throwing off the depth of field and thus showing up as ripples in the pics ?

Here's the video on the metal flakes embedded in the paintwork ==> https://www.instagram.com/p/BKjELLYA...rsprayer&hl=en

Hey PAR,

the paint is not yet completed. They're blocking the whole hull, then clear coat
