Here are photos of "Cloud Chasers" after adding a graphic design.




This photo, just completed an experimental project this weekend. Made using cardstock paper.

Wondered how it would turn out. A great looking bird!

The paint came out great! Good looking plane!

Thanks Colin,

Five years of the labor of love. Had my calendar full of fly-ins to attend this spring and now the Corona has me flying in isolation. :o

Same here, I am trying to plan a week or so flying/camping trip for early june. Knowing my luck, the weather will be bad, but I can at least try.

Now my -6 is finished. Hope the first flight will be in a few weeks.

congrats
 
Well done Karsten, I like the paint scheme and the shade of blue. Looks like there are a few vortex generators installed.

Dan 57 05-14-2020 04:19 AM

Beautiful paint scheme Carsten, probably the best I've seen to my taste... plushy plugs to top it up, congrats :cool:

The whole aircraft ist festooned with vortex generators, prior to having flown :confused: Care to lift the mystery?

Since you are not too far away and the borders reopening, I'll hope to see that magnificent machine in flesh during the coming summer :)

Great looking RV and great shots as well! I would love to get some nice airborne photos like that.

Thanks Colin - a fellow photographer and friend Jonathan Derden was gracious enough to take them for me!

Wow! those are NICE photos! He can take a pic of my plane ANY TIME! The tippers+ draggers are best looking RVs, bar none.

Note, though, this F-18 photo ... EGT issues, as evidenced by the different colored exhaust plumes. Even the big boys have issues.

219PB 10-13-2020 06:39 AM

Very nice photos. I am envious.

Count the rivets ;)

One nice day of July 2020 saw a bunch of Swiss RVs take part in a photoshoot mission... in turn we rejoined with the chartered Pilatus PC-6 Porter, from which 3 photographers kept firing at us :D
