I'm gonna step on this one.

developing yer own style is fine and dandy as long as you're tight with yer fundementals and proportions.

style takes a while to develop.

hey I like yer fly too y'know.

"MIMIC" = fundementals and proportions.......your step is misguided..."style takes a while to develop" like "patience"....not true for some and many as a matter of fact....

Why green dubbing ? If you want color to show through the tubing lay down a thread base in the color of your choice. Using dubbing will not leave a smooth surface and when you wrap your tubing it will not look good as there will be low and high spots.

Yes to rib it is one thing
But to use it as an underbody I'd just wrap a thread base.
