Default one of my self-done designs

Yeah it isnt too fancy, or too wild but it was a) my first scratch built plane and b) my first self designed 'pattern' covering job. I even cut the letters out of Monokote.

All my other covering jobs up until then were basic stripes, full colors with decals etc.

I've got two, can't make up my mind so I'll post both separately:

This is my Sr.Telemaster, HB.60 powered covered 100% with monokote. I used Transparent green, yellow, flourescent yellow (on the numbers), orange, red, chrome, white, flourescent green, metallic green, pink, black, cream, tan, and metallic brown. WHEW.

This is my Ultra Sport 60 w/OS FS.90, covered 100% with monokote, the graphics are all hand-cut.

Colors used: Flourescent yellow for the base color, black/white/pink/flourscent-blue on the tiger, base black/red/flourescent-red on the numbers and "ultra sport", and black/flourscent-green on the other text.

The numbers on the fuse and the "ultra sport" are a neon-tube design that the flourescent color highlights against regular red, but it doesn't show up very well in the photography.

I've not been able to find scans of my Bird of Time or Olympic99 or Windfree, but here is a pic of Dennis Adamisn's Oly, and the "ROY G. BIV" color scheme that I like to use. The yellow ("minus-blue") gives great visibility against a blue sky, and the red-green wingtips offer good orientation when specked out:
