This thread can't get enough *bumps*. Thanks for the technique! I'm going to almost exactly shamelessly copy your scheme (editing to post pictures). It looks perfect!

Thanks again,

No, no, no, no! See, there is a RED STRIPE on mine.

That's like the interview with Vannilla Ice asking if he copied Bowie/Queen's Under pressure. "No, see, theirs goes Dun-dun-dun-dun-da-da-dun. Mine goes dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-da-da-dun-dun...crash!".

Working on a new foamy....... I cut out the black from the "back ground" color so I could use the lighter semi transparent red checker over it. Also cut checker into main/wing color. Now I do not have to use the light color first. Why didn't I think of that sooner

EDIT.....Forgot to mention I finally remembered to weight bare air frame before and after and on this over sized 38" foamy I added 7gr in trim tape weight.

OK, I got some "claps" from a couple people walking near the park the other day, so I owe you 5%, rpmrpm...

Is 5% of a clap 1 finger?..........

I did not like the look of the just black fuse so added a 1/2 red strip, much better.

Not quite. I think if you read the fine print of your contract, that accumulated proceeds will only be paid out when a full clap is reached, and the accumulation resets each month. There are also fund management fees and escrow setup charges. I think you actually owe me, at this point.

That is a VERY good looking color scheme on that bird, btw. Hum, I may have to buy another DW just to copy it.

That red stripe you added finished it off nicely, Rpmrpm. For some reason, that one stripe makes all the difference.

Very nice work on all your DW foamies.

The above Black/Red Prototype meet a quick demise at the hands of what will remain unnamed DW team pilots at a event. Sooooo I'm putting a production kit together for myself. (Hands off this one!)

Even managed to use some of the tape on a more detailed painted model. Red strips and black windows are CPT.
