These are the ailerons and one flap for my 601xl painted in 2K Matterhorn white. If you click on the View Full Size button below the photo, you will see a drawing of my paint scheme under the airconditioner on the wall.

Well, from 12,000 miles away, they look great!  Ha Ha!  I'm not sure I have the courage to start a paint job!

How are you painting your parts ??? Paint gun, roller, paintbrush ???

If using a paint gun, HVLP ??? How much dust does it make and what type of paint booth have you made up ?

Asking because I have a HVLP gun and I need to paint my plane but I never used a HVLP gun and I don't want to paint the entire hangar content while painting the plane ... What kind of precaution do I have to take ???

Nice painting BTW. Thanks for the info.
