Default Blue trim

Jerry, curious as to why you used a lighter blue trim than darker blue that the Thunderbirds used? Either way it is well done!

The plane was already panted with the scallops on the nose by the original builder. He was an ald F-86 driver in Korea.

I added all the Thunderbird markings since the plane already had the nose markings. I'm an old Air Force guy myself and like honoring the TBirds.

Hey Nordo. I didnt meet the owner. It was tied on the ramp at KMGC, Michigan City airport just easy of Gary IN.. I got to KOSH about an hour later and there was an 8A panted almost identical just like it tied down in home built parking.
