When I first said I would do this build we (seebee1) and I didn't really have a covering design in mind. I was going to work up something when I got closer. But after some PM'ing back and forth during the day today we have come up with a different idea. We've decided to let you all, the RCU community, design the covering for Seebee. Remember that this plane is being built for him and his daughter, here is what Seebee posted about it earlier in the thread
She likes everything little girls like barbies, dolls, butterflys, Disney princess, ect..... fav colores are purple & pink I cant think of anything more to put down right now!!!! She would be happy with just about anything. Feel free to ask any questions that you might have and I can ask her.
So Bubbagates and myself are going to run a little contest here to try and come up with the design for the plane that we are building for him. Motivation for the design should come from Seebee's daughter, and as he said above please feel free to ask him any questions you might have for her. While this is going to be a friendly contest, there are a few "ground rules" that we need to go by. They are
1. All colors used need to be those available from the line of Monokote
2. No matter what color or design that is used please make sure you include the "Pay It Forward" and the "Navy Seebees" logos that I have included here.
3. While not mandatory we encourage the use of logos for other products used on this plane. These include Sig (LT-40), Futaba (Skysport 4 channel radio), Webra (.50 2-stroke motor), Top Flight monokote, Master Airscrew, Dubro, Tower Hobbies, and of course RC Universe. If you cannot find a good working copy of any of these logos please let me know and I'll get you copies of what you need.
So there you go. Nothing too fancy. What does the "winner" get?? Why the satisfaction of helping your fellow man or course!!!
Actually, since Pay It Forward is pretty poor all around there isn't too much we can give, but I will put together a package of high quality vinyl graphics for the winner. I'll include the following:
2 ea, 4" RCU logos (your choice of color)
4 ea, 2" RCU logos (your choice of color)
2 ea, 3" Pay it Forward logo
4 ea, 2" Pay it Forward logo
6 each, pilot's name graphics (i.e. Pilot: John Doe) (your choice of color)
I'll see if we can't come up with a few more graphics to throw into the prize.
I'm included in this post a 3 view of the Sig LT-40 for you to use to design the covering scheme. I have a larger version of this file available on one of my servers:
Sig LT-40 3 view drawing
. I've also included a copy of the PIF logo and a Navy Seebee logo for you to use.
Ok, I think that is it for now. If you have any questions about the design make sure you ask Seebee about it. Also, I'll be more than happy to answer any questions that I can.
That's it for now
