I copied MSPaint from my Windows XP machine because it is nice and simple. I converted the file to a 16 colour bitmap, drew the lines in black and used the paint fill tool to colour anything not black as the background colour. Doesn't take too long.

Bob,

It is a Honey Bee, so...do the flying surfaces in yellow, maybe with some black tissue trim on the wing LE.  For the fuselage, cover in black from nose to wing LE, then alternate yellow and black between each set of uprights back to the tail end.

Just a suggestion.

Cheers,

Mike

Ian, thanks for the template it really helped.

How did you draw it? I have tried with paint, but not too good yet.

Take this picture and use a paint program to paint the colours you want in the blank spots. It is a view of your honey bee. It should give you a taste for colour combos.

Tom, I am having trouble on what combination of color would look good.

BLACK/ORANGE
BLACK/YELLOW
BLUE/YELLOW
BLUE ORANGE

And so on, I am out of RED at the moment.

As far as finish scheme...go for bright colors! You'll have a flyer and the bright colors will help finding her after she hits a thermal!!! Smiley

The fuselage is finished with the LG wire attached, nose peice sanded to shape, and wheel pants constructed and sanded ( I had to add some CA to strengthen the 1/32 so my fingers would not crush the sides in while sanding)

Tom, the down thrust is already drawn on the plan to make it easy. I think these plans are in the archive.

Yep! they are located here: http://freeflightarchive.com/images/embryos/honeybee_embryo.pdf?type=file

Bob,
Looks like you've built in some down thrust in the front framework so you don't have to drill the hole at an angle...is that correct?  Looking very good.

The fuselage is finished, I am now finishing up the nose piece. At first I was going to use a bearing from Shortys Basement, then thought maybe Ill go with some aluminum tubing to make the prop bearing, but decided on using a large thrust button from Easy Built.
