Ever Forget The Launch Lug? Oops TIP

We've all done it at one time or another - you realize the launch lug is missing on a finished model.
You don't want to glue a new lug on and go through masking and refinishing.

Simply glue on a colored paper skin.
Print up some colored rectangles in different shades. Pick the one that is closest to the finish paint already on your model.
It's easiest to adhere with a glue stick.
Roll (don't brush) on a coat of Future acrylic with a Q-tip.
Keep the Future (here it's used as a printer ink sealant) away from the seam where it will be glued.

Scrape off some paint off the body tube where the lug will be glued. Make the scraped area smaller than the width and length of the lug. Glue on and fly!
