Question about frosting Enterprise nacelle domes


Well-Known Member
So I'm going to start on a 1/350 Enterprise NX-01 as my next project. This is a really dumb question, but I'm wondering about the best way to frost the clear domes at the front of the nacelles.
  1. lightly sand the outside?
  2. Frost the outside with Krylon Frosted Glass
  3. Frost the inside with Krylon Frosted Glass
  4. Don't frost but tint with clear red or clear orange (or both)
  5. Again, if tinting, inside or outside
  6. Other???
It seems frosting or tinting the inside would be better since it would keep the exterior very smooth, but I don't really have a way to experiment so I thought I'd check with the Big Brains™ here to see what everyone thinks is best.
