I was thinking about the blanket textures again, maybe a satin paint of slightly varying shades might replicate the texture? You'd still have to do a crapload of masking, but I've learnt to never underestimate your skills on a tough project.

I think you'll need to cut a few more than that,don't forget the white tiles have them markings as well.Hell if ya gonna go to th etrouble i might as well build a Challenger orbiter,it was more like 40,000 i think.

You know,i like the look of the tape although i'll wanna see what it looks like after primer and paint.This one is not really what i can build mate in the way of having it look realistic,not many i have seen have been either.I found a link to one build that had used some sort of tape,maybe even surgical and it looked PFG to be honest with ya and gives me ideas,a lot of time consuming ideas at that.

Nah mate,Mike was just going back to the shuttle blanket texture and maybe another way of getting the look.Still not sure that i'll go all that way with the tape and all them tiles,but i haven't said i won't yet either.

Have you seen one of those 4D shuttles at all by any chance.If so how did it look in the way of being accurate in it's profile.I thought about even getting one of those and just painting that up if it was more accurate than the kit shuttle.Maybe an expensive way of doing it but if it looked better in the first place i'd consider looking into it perhaps.Hell,then i'd have more time to make tiles and blanket patches also i guess? LOL
