Default Airplane Art

I recently took a class in neon art, and made this design which I just hung in my hangar. Being an engineer and not an artist, I'm pretty proud of it! It doesn't show up well in photos, but the propeller is a krypton-filled tube with a "beading" transformer that makes it look like it's moving (and yes, it's "rotating" the correct way! )



Based on my RV-7A

Joe,
That's really quite nicely done, Sir! If you start taking orders, let me know.

BTW, apologies for the somewhat poor pic...neon is notoriously hard to photograph, and this was shot with my phone, so rather suboptimal exposure (the red tubes are really red, "Ruby Red" tubes, but come out as orange-y in iPhone pics, e.g.). I'll try to get a better one with my dSLR this week.

Well done! Though you'd want to patent that before The Mothership guys see it and get an idea!

Either that, or start making them and get them to market them for you!!
