Perhaps I'm overlooking the obvious...

...but I stumped as to how to fix this.

In the process of painting Carenado's Piper Archer, I've discovered I can't figure out how to paint the rear end of the fuselage to match up with the stripe on the top. Here's a pic to demonstrate what I'm referring to...the area that needs to be painted is in between the dotted lines:

I can't seem to find that area on the template; or at least I don't know how to mark it off for painting if it's actually on the side fuselage template.

Here's the template I'm using: Carenado Template

Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi,
Thought if you extended the red stripe to the very end of the fuselage that that would have done the trick - as under -

-but that seems so obvious that you have probably tried without success.
I do not have the Caranedo Archer so can't go much further but I do notice in all the site images of the Archer, that part of the fuselage does not appear with any paint on it. Also note that they have recently offered an upgraded paintkit for the FS2004 Archer.
Not much help?

Embarassed I knew it was something obvious.

Cheers, davec! 😀
