Trapper, that is one beautiful airplane. When I start feeling dread over the prospect of having to learn and master the painting process, I see pictures like yours and so many other incredible RV paint jobs... and it turns my dread into inspiration! Thanks... I needed that.

That is one of the best military RV-8 schemes I have seen. Great job. I will be painting my RV-8 with a Navy scheme in the spring and I will be happy if I get anywhere near what you were able to achieve.
