Ow, that is interesting. Looks like my info is outdated. Could you find out from Nick, what dye does he uses and does it work on thinner films than Ultrafilm (like OS)? It would be cool the get some colour to them, would make spotting your own plane much easier, if there are several flying at the same time.
