D'oh!

I found a color very close at Wal-Mart. It's no good for large areas, but does touch-ups pretty well.

well luckily I was interuppted by my pops comin over and saying "is that krylon?" I said "yes" he said "STOP!" it was nothin that a little foam filler didn't fix.....now I just need some safe paint that matches and will go thru my airbrush. I was very sad for about an hour tho.

yellow zagi tape is a nice match. It does a better job of holding the plane together that paint does too.

Just a thought. I'm sure people will get sick of reading this. Yellow seam binding tape that seamstresses use works well in areas that need extra strength. You can either use odorless CA or epoxy. It turns out about has hard as fiberglass but lighter. The best part is that it comes in a bunch of colors. The yellow almost matches the TM. I put it around the areas where the wing hold downs go and to brace the area around the landing gear. It makes the area very strong. If an area breaks, it can hold it together like a champ. It works as well on balsa as it does on foam.

Peace,

So, what is the exact name of this seam tape and where would one obtain it?

What...me worry?

Banana :D


Try Apple Barrel #20219 Banana Yellow acrylic, available at most art and craft stores. Thin about 40-50% with water to run through your airbrush.
