    Lipstick On A Pig, Recovering a 35% Carden 330

    I'm the original owner of the kit but sold it to a fellow IMACer in Bellville years ago. He built and competed with it for a few years sold it to Paul McMillan. Paul had it for a season or two then sold it to a fellow club member. That owner had a midair with it but damage was minimal. I bought it a couple of years ago from him but then got sidetracked with Hucking so it sat around collecting dust.

    Well this poor Carden has seen better days. It has a kind of old school colour scheme and these days I find Orange and White just seem to blend together when the top is in shadow. Was going to sell it but decided to give this Pig some new Lipstick so going to do a complete recover and address some issues that have cropped up like the Ruder Control horn block popping out of the foam core.

    Any how not entirely settled on the scheme but chose the colors.I find Kawasaki or Fluorescent Green easy to see so going to incorporate the along with White. Decided on Metallic Charcoal as the "dark" color instead of just Black or Navy Blue. Throwing in some Metallic Plum for a Kinda Barney color scheme.

    Some shots of the old scheme and the new colors.

    Will design scheme on the fly.

    So here goes nothing......

    Re: Lipstick On A Pig, Recovering a 35% Carden 330

    Well no turning back now!

    A few areas to touch up while covering off.
    For the bottom I'm going to do 1/4 panel White and Metallic Charcoal with possibly Flescent Green Tips. going to do the angled intersection of the 1/4 panels. Probably not splaining it clearly but you will see.
