You can pass some of those kits this way.
To be clear, what I meant by simpler, is that it's a lot less messy than dealing with tape and paint. Still a good deal of effort put into covering trim work. Finally reworked an old Guillows Dauntless build with a lighter tail, removing the 3 tons of nose lead needed that kept me from flying it. I was just about to paint on the red stripes, and then decided to use Microlite for them. Turned out to be a good decision. The old one had a waterslide decal, but of course they don't give you a spare.
