I'm planning on keeping at least the fuselage white (untreated) with stickers, maybe I'll make the wings/stabilizer light grey.
You can get away with just painting them, but it'll peel off in most cases. Ya gotta have a base that sticks.Even if ya just do decals, you'll wanna seal them on with something.FODing your engine with your own decal is not cool.
