Markings added

Today I started to add the military markings that would have been on the jeep. I started with the stars on either rear corner. I took a few photos to show how I did this:

First, used a 6-inch star cut out from paper to mark the points of the star, and then connected the points with painter's tape and cut out the tape from the inside with an x-acto knife and a straightedge.

Next, added more tape and newspaper to catch the over-spray:

Hit it with some flat white paint,

then remove the tape and newspaper, and there it is! No stencils needed!
