SAI MiniBat Trim Drawing

The SAI MiniBat looked pretty plain.
I wanted to add some easy trim on the underside fro easier tracking.

Felt tip pens are used on competition gliders, they don't add any weight.
Take an extra moment before using a permanent pen, you only get one chance.
Use a straightedge and a finer point pen for outlines.

Fill in the outlined areas with a wide point pen.
Be careful when you get close to the border lines. The wider tip pen ink can bleed over the outlines.

After filling in the wide areas two forward fine lines were added.

It looks better than the naked model did. The pen lines will help it be seen overhead.
I followed up with a light spray of clear to seal the lines. If they get wet they can bleed.
