Ok, I'll play.

SOLITE: opaque colors: Black, dark blue, green

SOLARFILM: opaque colors: All solids, including White! (White looks just like a new Cessna and will cover anything!). Oddly enough, Red is probably the weakest color, and you can see slightly through it.

On this model, I used solite and would probably do it again. The structure is light and you would need to be carefull with the stronger shrinking solarfilm. But the solarfilm colors are so good, it might be worth it.

Heavier coverings such as monokote would be a disaster weight wise and would squeeze and twist it like crazy.
