The pin striping looks great. If you do any more of it can you post a little about how you did it; thanks.

Hi Graham, the pinstriping on the lever and on the picture below are waterslide decals I made using PowerPoint. PowerPoint works well for this because it uses vector based graphics for it's drawing tool which makes them come out very sharp. They are printed using a color laser printer.

I will be using a variety of methods for creating the pinstriping on this kit including actual pinstriping tape with widths that range from 1/16th to smaller than 1/64 of an inch, .005 Micron markers, stencils and a paintbrush.

In this last picture I used a combination of pinstriping tape and a paintbrush.
