I just finished up my Mini Honest John.
Rather than mask the roll pattern, I printed out the decal pattern John Boren posted for a positioning template.
Pieces were cut from a roll of Contact Paper blackboard covering.

The build thread is here:

It's still due for a dull clearcoat. Add some clay weight in the nose and it'll ready to fly.

Nicely done! While John Boren said that the test round decals probably won't make it into the Mini Honest John kit, maybe the test round roll pattern that he posted earlier in this thread could also be put up on the Estes web site, on a page that could be titled "Estes Scale Kit Enhancements" or something similar?

Nice work—the fin shaping and paint job make this one a little beauty. Let us know how it flies.
