The Natural seems to take paint better than the colored Solartex. I've done it both ways, however. Both ways work.

I haven't had trouble with either covering. Solartex is easier to apply.

On any covering, I let the model spend time in the sun, and re-shrink as may prove necessary.. I do this several times, until the covering becomes stable. Only then, do I appkly paint.

If I'm covering during the Winter, and it isn't possible to place the model in sunlight, I go over the covering several times with a heat gun, letting it cool between sessions.

The Cessna is modeled after a 1941 Cessna Airmaster.
