 Thinking on throwing on a clunk tank for my Brodak Ringmaster but not really sure which one would be a good one with so many tanks out there.

My recollection was they were in the 180 range as are most cottage kit manufactures kits unless really complex, or really simple

I was part of this discussion on another place, with a face and a thumbs up,,
ONe person contended that making the plane red made it harder to see accuratly and by that he felt you would score better because benefit of the doubt or something, never really got full grasp of his point.
There is some truth that maroon is harder to track than other colors,
then another poster of some acclaim commented that he painted his airplanes to be as visible as possble, contending that dark planes by capable pilots versus bright planes by the same pilots tend not to score as well, my take, because bright planes are easier to track and judge ,,

I love bright colors so it matters not to me, but even bright colors like my Green pearl beast  could get lost at dusk wth trees behind it, and it was NOT even close to leaf green, it just disapeared, however so did every other airplane flown on that particular night,,

I have to agree with Brett here, ( and I did not see hm taking it personal at all, just reporting the facts as he sees them) if you can get in one quality pracitve flight in the time you spend thinking about this, you are probably better off flying, or building.
However that said, some of us do enjoy the mental gymnastics of this sort of thing when we cannot be building or flying, just please, dont let it dictate your enjoyment or advancment, build straight, practice ( quality practice, dont just fly) practice more, and paint the plane the way you want. When you need another half a point, then think about color ok? Hoff

Having getting graphics made from our very own Aviojet.

I'm undecided on how I want to place them now and I am seeking y'alls opinions on what y'all think looks best.

Here's placement ideas at the moment. Which do y'all like best?

I have 2 sets of each graphic so I can do underside of wing as well if I wanted.

Does the color make a difference? I say yes, but it's not what you think. Paint the plane any color you want as long as you can see it. If you can see it the judges can see it. Say if your flying amongst trees I personally would not want a leaf colored airplane.

well, I decided to try it again and went up to my local NAPA store and picked up a can of Colorline grey primer (NAPA DC540).
I was wondering if one of the Duplicolor brand primers was the same as the NAPA 540. Oreilly probably has it, but I didn't want to risk getting the wrong stuff, so I went to the NAPA store where they sell both.

The DC-540 is the good stuff. I had terrible results with the white Duplicolor primer too, but my problem was it hardened too much for a good sanding job. I really like the Perfect Match Duplicolor acrylic lacquer paints, and they spray right on top of the primer. I like their adjustable nozzle and triangular spray pattern too.

That's a great looking Cardinal, I loved mine. It was very old and pretty raggitty when it was given to me, but I got a good couple of years out of it. last spring I won Intermediate in a 22 mph wind, so I took a wide Sharpie and named it Wind Warrior. The controls let go a month or so ago and now it's in a grocery bag. The good news is now I have a spare LA .46. I'd like to build a kit. Or even an ARC if such a thing existed. I hope yours lives a long fun and productive life.

Wonderfully dismissive Brett, and you seem to be taking this personally and as an attack.

The original post asks about will colors affect my score
, and sure the judge is indirectly relavant here as they are simply an unbiased  Grin reporting mechanism but what about the 1st person perspective of the pilot?

They fret about inadequacies, perform below their best as a result and that directly effects their score. Sounds more than relavent to me.

But as you say, none of this matters and is a waste of time.
