Default Show us a picture of your FINISHED RV-6/6A!

I'll start....
This picture was taken by Ed Hicks during Van's Homecoming a couple of years back. Van himself was flying the photo ship (no pressure). I was running a Lyc O-320 Sensenich FP setup when this was taken, but am now using a ECi KitEngine (180hp) and a Hartzell blended airfoil C/S.

The picture of the white and red -6A above is an optical illusion. The 'runway' that you see there looks like it's a parallel runway. In the bottom right-hand corner of the picture you can see a little bit of the runway he's arriving at/departing guess it departing based on the pitch angle.
