I don't say this just because they are mine, but I have not seen any schemes I like more than the ones I used on a couple of my Blaze's. Feel free to use them. I can't find any programs on the ipad to draw them on your blank canvas, but here are a couple pics of mine.

I need to re-paint a section of my JTM L-39 HPAT Scheme and was wondering if anyone can confirm what kind of paint JTM uses. I've heard that it was a single component automotive grade paint but I'm not exactly sure what that means. I don't want to use rattle can paint on it if it's going to bubble up. I'd like to take my plane to a local automotive body shop and have them match the paint and mix up a pint of each color to use in my spray gun or airbrush at home. Any thoughts?

If I need some paint matched I take it to the paint store the one here has a scanner that will match it close enough to blend in.

When you say paint store, I assume you are talking about somewhere other than a typical Sherwin Williams or Home Depot.

yes go to a Automotive paint store We have a Dupont store here that I use but any of the ones you have should have a scanner. If not maybe some body shop guy can match it for you.

Stu said 47's....I'm still deciding if I should get this or an Electra. I like the price point of the XXX (Electra size frame at a Spark price) but I don't know if the quality will be up there with BVM (I'm not expecting it but I certainly don't want HET quality either). I know I don't want to be the guinea pig and have this turn out to be a Super Sniper XL. I also don't want to have to put in a ton of hours of mods to make it airworthy due to bad design. AND I know I don't like my money sitting waiting for a jet that isn't here yet and certainly for one that hasn't been proven.

I'd like to see some photos of the new honey come construction and some photos of the planes in construction, not unlike Tim Wan is doing with the foam Victory. I'd also like to see the manual for this so I know what's going to be involved to build it. How about some video of the prototype flying? Some pics of the retracts installed and working, etc. Basically, updated info on the plane that will make me and others comfortable with putting down $3k to buy it.

I don't think that it's much to ask for a plane that costs this much.
