    Help! What Paint theme should I go for on the FT Tutor?

    I was thinking about a yellow lightning bolt Cub style with a white body? Or maybe even stars and bars?

    Spray painted FT TT and Explorer, notes on sanding/masking

    I painted my FliteTest planes! Rust-Oleum spray paint, matte base coat with gloss color coat + gloss clear coat. I didn't end up needing to sand for good adhesion even on taped areas.

    Automotive Paint (!/?)

    Just scratch built my second 4ch FT Simple Cub with pontoons, and I'm liking the finished product more than my first attempt - enough to want to paint it! So I'm not a veteran of the Flite Test community or anything (having only built two planes), but I do work as an automotive painter at a...

    Pre-painting foam board?

    I just finished my first Speed build kit, the Storch, using the water resistant foam board kit. I painted it with Bin Zinzer sealer then Rustolium and it came out kinda rough. I didn't care to much anyway as this is my first foam board plane and it is going to be a trainer, so it looks ok for a...
