That was a few passes. Wasn't getting any better.

Can you mask rather than freehand?

I'd be at it for a week, and there are a lot of crazy tricky spots that can't be masked. Not worth it. Gonna prime it and call it a day.

Sh!t, man, I'm sorry.  I still recommend taking a break or working on something less finicky for a while before you give up on this project.  I know you've been at this hobby a lot longer than I but many's a time where I've felt like a project is beyond salvation only to put it aside and come back later and be able to take it to the finish line.  I don't know about you but my hand tremors are transient, so what I can't do today I often can tomorrow.

Well, I hit the whole thing with primer, and it looks a million percent better already. Yeah, hand tremors suck. Mine are with me all the time any more, so I know there's not much opportunity for improvement. Silly me to think otherwise. So, I'll go back to making faux Code 40 track--at least my hand tremors just add to the character of the track!

Oh, what the hell... may as well. Not much use to me.

I'd sit on it a while. Who else is done with their projects anyways?

Sit on it? Hmmm... Can't be worse than trying to paint it...  :facepalm:

Well if that's the case, don't look too closely at my loadout.  Green paint bleed out underneath the tape, damn corrugated siding, so my lines aren't crisp.  But it's somewhat covered up by weathering, but you can still see if you look.
