Default Paint

Thank you. I sketched it out about 7 years ago. Paint is all Jet Glow on epoxy primer. Matterhorn White, Aristo Blue, and Deep Red. Finished with ceramic coating.

Default C-GMGO is registered N888CR

. . . . and now we move toward a US AWC.

I am thrilled to be moving toward having an RV8 in my hangar. The best comment I have heard about these planes, it's the closest a civilian can get to flying a jet fighter.

You're going to love it. I saw the advertisement for that bird and it didn't last long. There is a reason.
