Default My RV-3

This is my RV-3 that I acquirred in 2005. It was built by Rexfor Peters. I am the third owner of the plane. It has 150hp 0-320. The photo was taken at the Millinocket Municipal Airport. The mountain in the background is Mt. Katahdin which is 1mi high and is the start/end of the Apalachain Trail.

I've this "flame plane" up close at OSH. It is the most impressive paint job I have ever seen. Truly, a work of art.

Just a question? Wonder if a similar effect could be done with a gloss black base & vinyl wrap with the flames? Similar to the wraps NASCAR uses.

Love the paint job.
