Those are the very things I was concerned about.
I figured the colors would wash out some but didn't consider the tissue becoming translucent.
I do like he idea of a white substrate and now that you mention it that is a method Paul used on his micro Hellcat.

Covering an 18" span model in coverlite then tissue might be adding a lot of weight. Not sure about that with the limited power available. Even solite seems like it would be on the heavy side for such a small model but that might be my only choice.

Maybe this whole printed tissue thing just won't work the way I had hoped. I might be better off going with painted tissue and save the double covering job for a larger model.
