In recent years I have explored the possibilities of using colored packing tape for custom coloring airplanes. Tape is not only colorful but adds tremendous tensile strength with very little weight. For custom decals I scan the tape to match the color(s) in a graphics program, then create design shapes and have them color printed on clear 8x11 labels at Kinkos-Fedex Copy shops ad they work fantastic (see Flying Eagle, Stryker C, or Viper Jet, Typhoon II, pics). Please feel free to post pics of what others are doing with packing tape coverings!~ James
