That's sweet. I thought the green looked kind of strange at first but it complements the white rather nicely.Got more done today. Servos are in and push rods connected using short z-bends and heat shrink. After the push rod length is fine tuned a couple of drops of CA on the heat shrink will lock it in place.

You could do the poor man's method which is what I do to put graphics on planes. If you turn your iron down to a super low setting, like about 40C, you can lightly stick the covering to a sheet of dtfb and then use a knife to carve whatever intricate details you please into it. The nice thing about dtfb (or just the paper) is that paper is much less porous than balsa so when you go to take the graphic back off you end up taking off almost none of the adhesive at all from the graphic and it will stick to the plane just fine.Great job on the graphics. I wish I had gone ahead and bought a Cricut back when I could afford it.....
