Default Kyosho Gee Bee Z - 40 Covering Yellow and Black

My Brother in law gave me a Gee Bee Model Z40 by Kyosho some time ago unfinished. I put it on the shelf for a few more years because the covering on the wings was lifting... Not the covering it's self but the clear coating over it. I decided to dive head first into it and removed it with acetone and sanding. I want to make sure I order the correct covering for it. It is the Yellow and Black Version Very yellow ... Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Rich

Default Gee Bee Monokote

Well I tried yellow monokote nothing fancy, it is a little less see through than the original covering but it worked out great. I recovered the entire wing with Monokote and used Ultracote for the black. I sprayed the yellow with Windex and moved my black cut-out pattern of Ultracote around until I had the desired placement. I wiped it down and pushed out the air and Windex bubble and used my Iron and heat gun to finish the job. I just have a little more red trim that I picked up from the auto parts store... (So much cheaper and it turns corners) to put on to complete the wings. I installed a E-flite-60 with a 6s 5500 mah battery the conversion was very easy.
