Paint Step 3: Ming Blue

The Tejas AeroServices team applied Ming Blue to 252Q last night. Here are some photos of where we are today...

The next step in the process is to apply the color altering paint called Chromallusion by DuPont. The CL process is quite involved. Here are some photos of the different materials that will be applied to 252Q in a very specific order to get the color altering effect. Any glitch in the application of CL will require a complete strip and repaint, which is why only a couple of shops in the country are capable of applying Chromallusion paint to an airplane.
