"I will pick up the carbon tube tomorrow for the spars. The spruce spar is pretty heavy. I think the balsa and carbon spars will cut the weight down some. If I can shave a little here and there it will add up."

This is indeed true. It is so much easier to build lightness into a plane than to try putting it on a diet after finding it heavier than you would prefer!

As for colors I like cream or off white with a contrast of most any dark color like brown, blue, black, green. red, maroon...
