This was the only thread I could find with the words 'paint' and 'champ' in the title -

Champ paint

If your's is the small Champ then weight can be a problem.

You could try one of the felt tip marker pens, permanent marker, Sharpie etc. But do test one out on a small area of the foam first to make sure it is safe.

Many paints can dissolve foam.

Ya i seen that thread also, i cant believe there is nothing more then that on it. It is the small one, so the weight could be an issue. I've seen alot of champs with camera's on em, so i figured the correct paint wouldnt be much of an issue. and obviously i dont want to mess up the foam.

thx

Most of us buy the Champ to be a 1st and very basic trainer. When we get good enough, THEN we go for the good looking planes. Besides, weight is really an issue!

It's always a good reason, (excuse ),

..."but I have to have a new plane,.....this ones the wrong color".
