212 scopes question?

Postby Bigdave » Thu Mar 10, 2011 2:56 pm

I am woundering why the red would be painted on some of the scopes for this sub?
Any of you guys know for sure. :?: Thanks, BD.

BD,

These pictures were taken during Builder's Trials. Just another measure to make sure the big freighters wouldn't run over her. The orange came off after trials were done.

I guess it is kind of a dayglow orange. :oops: My bad!!
Thanks Bill! :D
I thought it was something like that but was not sure.
Might not be a bad option to have on a model either with some of the crazy target-drivers out there. :shock:
Not this bubblehead of course!! :mrgreen: :lol: BD.
