Happy New Year All!
I am not sure if I just uploaded the 3 pictures or not. So I will check back later to see if they got uploaded.
On one of the pictures you see my origianl boring design. At first I went with Rondells and Stars. Then I saw a wing design on another plane and thought that I could do that. So, I did it on paper first and then I cut it out of covering material

I used 4 different covering material colors. It was 3 different brands, Parklite, Econocote, and a some Monokote. I tried to keep the overlap as small as possible, about 1/4 inch. The red is the bottom layer and it simply a ribbon of material.

I hope this helps. You made my day!

I am lucky, we have a laser at work, so I cut out the shapes there.
