Yeah, I know... I showed my wife a picture of a Seduction FS in transparent blue,
and the first thing she said was "Hey, it'd be cool if you had glitter on the inside".

I'm picking one up in the next week or so... and I think I'll cover it somewhere
besides home. Either that, or cover it something bland and opaque. Olive drab, perhaps?

Yeah, I know what you mean. When I bring a new plane to the field I want everyone to know a MACHO guy built it!!! :boxing: None of that wimpy stuff so for me. [Don't tell anybody but I have a roll of neon pink in my basement] Afraid to use it

Default Color

I guess light colors abroad(around the globe) are not so much representative of gender like they are here...and since most of the models we buy are from over sea's, that would explain the color schemes...they don't use or look at color like we do...But' I still think airplane colors should say kill, smash, look out I'm on fire and about to explode with power...Just Kidding... whatever you(out there) like is cool...But' you gotta fly it...

If I had a little girl, I'd dress her up in pretty pink ribbons and frilly things. I do the same with my non-human girls.

Let's face it...

"She" purrs like a kitten.

"She" flies like a dream

"She" hit the ground like a sack of potatoes

Besides, what else can give you so much pleasure, and at the same time cause you so much heartache than a female?

Yeah, There's nothing uglier than a pink machine. At least most of the "pink" planes are Extra's and the like...don't see too many pink macho planes.
I guess that all machinery capable of causing vast amounts of frustration are considered female. Look at her go. Thar she blows. She flies sweet. She lands nice and slow. At least the warbird artists limited their "femme" designs to nose art. Imagine a menacing "pink" DC3. Could have possibly been more effective as the enemy would have died laughing. Dump the pink guy's.

Hey Now.
I like all of the flourescent colors, I even have used circus pink on planes before. Nothing about them seemed to awefully UN-Macho. No I would never use a barbie but the DOLLS I use are ones like GIJoe and XMen DOLLS. The pink colors, well the blues and reds are very easy to see in the air. I can bring a pink whiz by your head at 113 mph and you won't think it's a whimpy plane at all, I'd bet. Just my opinion..

I would'nt think a pink whiz is whimpy. But I would get checked for internal bleeding.
