what happened? why did that one drip so bad? didn't look like it rained.

 

unfortunately it happened 3 times i had to redo that train. it was the humidity. almost everyone of those round trains i had to redo a few times. imagine doing all that work and going back a few hours later in the daylight and seeing that glob of a mess lol i was so frusterated. i dunno if its because they hold a liquid inside them and it causes alot of moisture or what but once the dew breaks in the morning and humidity they turn into a mess like that.

first thing, those "round trains" are called tankers.

 

painting with latex or acrylic bucket paint on steel isnt going to always work out because thats not the ideal material made for those type paints. especially tankers due to the contents inside condensing and expanding due to temperature change.

 

not sure why you would go back and redo it, even a 3rd time though? doesnt make much sense

Im guessing if i didnt go back you prob would of said why didnt you just go back and re do it. It wasnt very far and my friend died recently, i put his name at the top, and it bothered me leaving it a blur so it was personally important to me to fix it for him. Anyways thanks for the heads up on the info on the tankers. I had a bunch of mis-tints so it prob was the wrong kind like you said.
