The canopy was done with Rit Dye.

Monokote on Monokote
It has a real visible bottom with a three inch black stripe tip to tip on the main wing and a two inch one on the stab all on solid white back ground you can see it pretty good.

specs:
Great Plains Super Sportster kit.
Covered with Monokote.
Enlarged and reshaped the rudder and a Sullivan tail wheel.
It is wearing a Hitec flight pack and Magnum 46 with APC 11X5 prop,, a over sized great plains 14 oz fuel tank and on board volt watch I left the wheel pants off because of flying off of a rolled road base runway.
Mine came out finished weight of 5.5 lbs after adding 3 oz of buck shot and epoxy to the built up nose cowling.
What has everyone else's weighed?
