So, I've made the commitment to build my 38 mm kit that I've had in my pile for 8 months, it came with no instructions, pretty sure I can figure it out though..
I just left the paint shop and I wanted the 1970 Plymouth lime green in Metallic but no dice, they pulled out the color chart and I came up with this. "Lime green". white fins and nose cone.

$125 bucks later, the color is at least checked off of my list.

Tonight it begins...and I'm psyched!

Great choice for the color. I was questioning my choice of color but I was glad I went with Tropicana Green. I get lots of positive comments.

Add a few extra vinyl decals for extra effect :)

Wow.. that pops!! I was going to go with black. Did you use clear coat? But chose the white instead.. the paint lady put the color chips down in front of me and this one caught my eye. (The picture does not do it any justice)

Nice color in and of itself. Hopefully the fields you fly at are not grass/fields etc.

Does a 3 mile by 5 mile squared sod farm count? Lol !!
Try for a gluten-free launch site, or use GPS.

I like the black highlights (fins) personally. Understated. The white is more in your face.
