Awesome Idea. My paint matching didn't come out as nice, but it was close. Atleast in the air you won't be able to tell the difference. I am lucky that the Moth doesn't really need it, but my J3-F did, now it is kinda two tone yellow, LOL. I'll give the yellow ink & elmers a try next time I need to fill something in.
