I like it.

In fact I was playing around with a spinner the other day.
My buddy wanted me to paint a spinner.

I figured a Montblanc pen design would be cool.

Taff,
Wouldn't the center look pink when turning?

Maybe!
I don't know!

Shush! He won't know, unless someone tells him It could look cool?

Anyway, the spinner is going to a prop that is hanging on the wall of his hangar. So it is decorative and I guess we will never find out.

Looking at the spinners raises a timely question from me; when spraying a spinner, does one need to keep the spinner rotating while spraying it, to achieve an even surface, or are the minuscule differences in layer thickness negligible in regard to balance?

Wouldn't a dynamic balance take care of it or as questioned, paint thickness is negligible?

a couple of notes below.

Probably if one got massive runs on one side and orange peel on the other, there would be an out of balance issue.
Try to spray anything evenly, including spinners.

There are bigger things to worry about Beej. I have painted several while they were stationary and it did not cause the planes to crash…..
