Default Awesome

I love both of these. That 140 is a looker. Such a great airplane. And the RV, well, obviously.

Default Great idea

I really like the nod to the Swift. Looks absolutely great on an RV.

I'm another fan of Golden Age paint schemes. Trying to come up with something involving cream and red, or maybe a nod to the Monocoupe. Not really sure how to make that look good on a -9A. A man can dream.

Here is mine. Instead, its a 'retro Globe Swift' homage.

I figured I'd add some vinyl artwork after painting it plain aviation grey, but then the basic lines seemed so nice I just keep putting it off...

You have a very contemporary paint scheme! Seeing a lot of new "aviation" gray muscle cars and Corvettes. Nice look.
