I have noticed on all of the flitetest scratchbuilds that they look to be painted or colored in some way. Can you make an episode on how you guys paint your planes?
Thanks,
Carbon

PS, perhaps it could be a fast tip?

Here's my take...

Painting: make sure you are using a spray paint that is foam safe. If in doubt, don't paint with it.
Decals: Draw it up or "borrow" it from the web. Print on photo grade paper and tape over with clear packaging tape.
Film covering: If you are building a foamy, use laminate. Its that stuff used in laminating machines. Set the iron to wool unless it is worn out.
Be creative and make it what you want it!
