    Interesting technique dk. I had tried this once (didn't work near
    as well for me!) but I did try working with Red River silver paper.
    It is a little thin, but with careful use, it can work well.

    Kudos on your build and your success with the painted paper. That
    concept could open up a whole new area with some custom paint
    jobs.

    Keep us posted

    The metal look to the plane is great! and your build makes it look even better.

    Congrats on a job well done. Cant wait to see the finished plane.

    Nice build and a very interesting technique with the painted silver paper. This paper looks as good as any other commercial silver paper that I've seen. Now if we can figure a way to print it with ink jet.

    dk,

    Did you remove all coloring before you printed the parts onto the painted paper?

    Hi there,
    No I did not remove coloring. I printed all pages on black and white laser printer first. Then I used decals printed on mailing lables to attach stars and markings.
