Inkscape, Recoloring, and old threads!

So a lot of stuff gets buried over time. I'm trying to dig a few things up for members who weren't here, don't know where to look, don't know how to find what we've already covered in the past...

Here are some oldies-but-goodies

I've got a bug currently and bought Murph's Black & White F-16 and am in the process of converting it to vector (don't ask me how long it will take!!!) like I wish I had done the Caravan I did last year.

Whelp, I forgot to attach the screenshot. Right now my process is to corners of the part with the "Draw Bezier Curves and Straight Lines" tool, add a couple of nodes, split it in half, then add in the details as a separate group, copy and flip, and then you have two perfectly matched halves that can be easily recolored.
