6/18/18:  Well, I'm a believer! As long as the Stewart Systems paint holds up, I'll be using it again. I added the full amount of flattener to the EkoPoly Premium. This gives the plane a very original feel with a slight sheen. We'd call this "eggshell" in the automotive world. Without the flattener, the paint is crazy glossy, and able to take a cut/polish...maybe on the next plane. I got myself all nervous while researching waterborne paints, but the color sprayed out very nicely. You just have to follow directions and avoid getting in a hurry.

There are things I'd do different next time, but I'm happy with the results, particularly for a first go-round with covering. The ST-L instruction manual will include covering tips (non-brand specific) so builders can try and avoid my mistakes.

As you can see, the voters picked the yellow PT-20 military scheme. Please excuse the disaster of a shop...it'll probably look like this until the week before AirVenture!
