Looks like my Slick too.

I did mine with paint pen as well.

Walmart has a 5-pack of neon paint markers for $9.99 back in the area where they sell plastic models, etc...

I'm thinking of going wild with the neon colors, if I get one of the UM AS3X Sbachs that's expected to be released very soon.

I did the same thing on my Slick. Orange on the top where it was white and pink on the bottom where white. It's really easy to tell the orientation of the plane now.

I've seen your plane in person - nice the way you dressed it up.

Thanks. I was attempting to get as much contrast as I possibly could.
Torque rolls are a breeze with the additional colors.

Find a new place to fly yet?

2. in some stage of build or on order / awaiting parts, etc...

I was going to have another line for ones that have been retired/crashed/parts planes, etc... but quickly realized that number could be really high for some folks, myself included, so we'll just leave that one alone for now... lol

... we're all proud of having several planes but let it be known that a few of ours ain't flyin so good

1. 16 gas up, charge, slap a battery in and whatnot kind of planes in total but this includes all the foamies, parkflyer stuff, old beaters handed down and some lame planes that haven't flown much at all (but still will fly).
2. a bunch of planes in bags where we may have gotten another ARF and kept stabs, ailerons, elevators and what not, 2 or so ARF fuses hangin around and there is a brand new 100cc EF 104 Extra headed this way real soon as our fall project... SO STOKED!!!
