It might depend on how many colors you want... where/how you apply them... are you going to trim it with monokote, or cut your own graphics with different colors?
,
As far as the area goes.. each standard roll of Monokote is 26"x72".. so.. just take the measurements of your plane... all dimensions.. do a bit of planning scheme and color wise.. and you should have your answer.

PS.. Monokote has like 40 colors available .. which can make for some very nice finishes.

I usually like to have two rolls of the major color , and one roll of the minor color on hand when I cover a plane . Lots of leftover ??? YEP , and it goes to good use during the eventual repairs that all planes seem to need

I just ordered 3 6 foot rolls for the 6' telemaster I'm building. We'll see how it goes...
