Great first post BTW, and welcome.

Looks awesome! By chance, that's the scheme I was considering!

Default Very nice Joe!

Who did your paint job? Nice looking bird. Can't wait to see mine looking that pretty. if I am not mistaken that looks like a Todd's canopy, which I am also planning for mine.

Bryan,

Thank you. I don't know who painted it but I can ask the builder if you'd like. Yes, that is a Todd's canopy.

Hello Robert,

Great paint scheme. I love the roulettes and their scheme.

Just curious how you managed to get permission to use the RAAF Roundel. It's copyrighted nationally and internationally by the Defence Act 1903, Trade Marks Act 1995 and the Chester Herald Act 1939. I''m involved in an organisation that had aircraft using it and we were instructed to remove it because of this copyright.

Default Finally Finished

I can now finally call my RV-8 finished. Last Thursday I picked it up from Ed's Aircraft Refinishing @ KHWV. Ed is a true craftsman who was just a pleasure to work with. His attention to detail and quality standards are top notch. Below are a few views. Flew it to Sky Manor on Sunday and was one of the RV's that took home a trophy

For those who are counting, 7.5 years to first flight, 2.5 years of flying looking like Vlad.
