Sailplane Construction Project Session #77
I am definitely going to use yellow silk and I am
considering orange silk in color combination for the Sailplane. My
initial thought was to cover the wing and stab with yellow silk and the
fuselage and rudder with orange silk. So I reproduced a Sailplane 3-view
and colored it in as shown below to get a feel for how that would look. It
looks kind of plain to me, what do you think?
Then I remembered about a week or so ago, Tom
Ryan had suggested a combination of three colors, which didn't really work
for me. However, his suggestion for the wing had promise. He suggested using
orange silk on the tips and center section with yellow inner panels. Using
this for the wing, I adding orange to the tips of the stab and kept the
fuselage and rudder orange. To me, this adds a little more pizazz to color
combination as shown below and can be accomplished with only a little more
effort. What do you think about this color combination? Oh yes, I
may paint a strip down the side of the fuselage, maybe in black.
In the morning I want to get some better yellow
and orange colors and look at some other possibilities.
I also have red and white silk as shown below,
but I will not consider dying any silk! If you have an idea for a good silk
color combination, particularly in orange and yellow, I sure would like to
