 they say 'Leica' but because they are bright red and white.

Yes, I agree with your method of being near invisible with your Leica.  This
obviously would work with any black-bodied camera.  Taping a chrome M is
another question!!
Although I haven't had the need to do the same with my black M6 (I have not
traveled abroad with it yet), I certainly would not hesitate to make it "all"
black and invisible.
