Default T-28 in silver?

Has anyone tried covering the T-28 with aluminum foil?

Want to change the look on the T-28 from drab Navy white to something else. Was thinking of using aluminum foil applied with spray adhesive on the T-28 but wondering about the added weight.

Any suggestions

Aluminum foil might JUST give your radio a bit of a problem (maybe) ! How about some nice silver exhaust manifold paint, or Krylon or something? Foil just sounds like a nightmare waiting to happen.

However, if you do decide to go ahead as planned, please post pix before & after the flight!

Since I am using the 72Mhz radio the antenna is on the outside of the plane (not like the 2.4Ghz). Radio reception should not be a issue.

I thought of paint but it just isn't the same finish. I was going to change the markings to the USAF scheme and there planes were polished aluminum.

I have used the chrome monocote covering on other balsa planes and it looks great but the heat to seal it may cause issues with the EPP foam.

People have been covering the Supercub for years, so I'd guess that covering the T-28 would be fine.
