I have a Big Daddy ready to paint, but I want to do somthing different than the Black,, has anyone come up with a good color to go with the stock decals?

I made a little drawing that I can change colors on any more ideas?

Dark blue looks good.

So would red.

But as my wife says, "NOT another white rocket!"

Some dark colors might change the appearence of the yellow in the "decal." It is somewhat translucent.

One thing to consider: whatever color you paint the body, paint the entire nose cone yellow to match the stripe... ties them together better and doesn't cut the stripe off as bluntly... make sense?

I saw a pic of one somewhere in a bright metallic blue (substituted for the black) that looked very sharp.

My son Ben decided to use his signature paint scheme: black body, red nose tip and fin tips, with yellow trim monocote to complete the reversal. I'll post a photo later.
 

Hello,

I like the blue and yellow Big Daddy. What program did you use for the drawings? I like the idea of drawing up the rocket and then experimenting with different colors.

Best regards,
Brian

Brian,

I took a screen shot from rocksim and pasted it into a paint program. rocksim does all the work that way
