Well I was trying to come up with a cool looking paint scheme for my Estes Stormcaster when it hit me. If I can’t hide the BT seams, use them. I painted the whole thing black, taped off the seams and fins, repainted green and removed the tape. I think it came out very well.

Good use of stripping tape Dan, Nice Job!

you can do the same with regular trim monocoat and most adhesive backed vinyls.
Here's a model that only has a few tiny gold paint pen painted antenna's the Body, upper section, transition and fins are all covered with Black marble and gold leafed vinyls. "What to do with trash tubes and old used transitions and a few styrene fins:)
