Default I painted my -8 again. On canvas this time.

I was having a little difficulty transitioning from aircraft builder back to normal human. So, I thought I would try and bridge the gap by painting a picture of my -8 and use some of the skills I've picked up and build an aluminum frame for it.

I chose one of our famous Nova Scotia landmarks for the background.

An enjoyable project all n' all.

Very cool! I envy those who can paint. I'm so colorblind that I can't even get paint-by-numbers right.

In a nice looking frame. Although those corners are pretty sharp and might could use some more deburring . Beautiful.

Very nice Paul! Now I know what kind of frame I need for my RV1 canvass. Can you make me one?






Beautiful cliffs you have there in NS. Missing you and your great people...
