It sounds like what you did for your window frames was "dry-brushing". A bit of paint on the brush and lightly going over the surface to be painted. It's funny....you mentioned shaking with the brush......I've had to stop drinking my staple of life (Diet Pepsi) hours before I do any paintwork. Same goes for ANY energy drink, really. A can of Red Bull can ruin any model as far as I'm concerned.

When I set out to plan my builds (this one and the next lighted one) I scoured the internet for information....asked tons of stupid questions on other forums, and finally got the hang of small scale LED lighting and fiber optics. I can't tell you how many blown up LED's and fried circuit boards I have littering my workspace. But....it was all worth it in the end. I will feel more than confident when I start the lighted build.....only because I plan to do a few lighted ships (ocean going AND sci-fi) beforehand.

Practice makes perfect.

Matt
