That's got to knock at least half an hour out of the finishing time.

I did consider a decal for the payload section, but it would have added $6.00 to the cost, based on the size. Only one would fit on a sheet. It is also difficult to get a decal to cover that area without wrinkles. Tape and monocote are easier for me to get straight lines than the thin decal material. I had thought of printing it on the vinyl stock that we use for tape discs, but it is even harder to apply without wrinkles. Decisions, decisions....
