I need help! Yeah, and alot of therepy as well. Seriously though, if any of you comic strip readers have any transperant film covering, (doesn't care about brand) in yellow, orange & red, I want to try something on the new plane I'm building. I only need a very small amount of each, like only a square inch or two of each color to test out an idea. Trying not to have to buy a roll of each just to find out my idea isn't going to work out ( usually my luck) SHOOT ME a PM. Will gladly pay $THOUSANDS$ of dollars to send it this way, just don't want to spend $35.00 on three rolls that I can't use

I've got transparent red, and I think some green around here, and would be happy to send along some. Please PM me your address and it will be on the way! Looking forwards to seeing what you're up to!

When you said TRANSPARENT, I thought about my belt roll of clear. Alas, the only other trans colors I have are blue and purple. Good luck with the super secret project.

In time she could give our lone female thread member some company here on the forum**. Pictures? Well I'll have to work on that as she is very camera shy. I have a number of tricks in my camera bag for that problem though. She can't hide from the camera she can't see.

Good luck Scaflock, but I'll remain a confirmed bachelor.

Like John Mellencamp sang, "I need a lover that won't drive me crazy. One who knows the meaning of, 'hey, hit the highway".

IHAVAWDY, I know I have yellow and red. May have orange. I sent a whole roll of orange to GDon but may have some scraps. I'll report tonight.

OK everyone had a telephone conversation with the Coyote this morning. After a thorough debriefing and a detailed description of every movement he made that day from the time he woke up until he was heading home from the field I was able to deduce the exact second he screwed up. The moment the debis field settled he failed to properly pass blame. A serious breech of etiquette.

Photographing the fairer gender: I have a story to tell but will save it for later.

In my musings with transparent covering films I've found they all have VERY different working temps. Enough heat to almost shrink Moneykote will make Econokote or Ultracoat curl up into a mumbling ball in the corner. I've got some trans red MK on the outboard panels and Ultra on the inboard. If I had some trans red Ultra that MK would come off in a hurry and be in the bin with the SoLite (aka Film of Mephisto)

Tanks for the info Laquerhead, temps aren't going to be a factor in this experiment, but I will take that info if things work out and I end up running these in the final...
