found an answer for all of us u can paint it using a water cleanup paint like Tamiya or Testors. Personally I'd use testors coz its a better quality but a little more expensive YAY now you know

Latex is excellent and can be color matched to almost any color you want. Price is about $8 - $10 PER QUART. That should last for quite a few planes. The Testor's and Tamiya are what, $2 or more a bottle of 1 or 2 oz ?
