Default Serial Number 120001 Painted

RV-12 serial number 120001 is painted. Some of you may remember this aircraft as Jim Cone?s project. Jim finished the build, shipped it to me and I added lights, pants and paint. The aircraft now has 42 hours TT. Weight prior to paint was 729 lbs so I?m estimating 770 lbs finished.

Default the frosting on the cake ...

As far as I'm concerned, the paint job is the frosting on the cake and your RV-12 looks good enough to eat! Great paint job! Be safe and enjoy your RV-12.

RV#120003 (N124JG) weighed in at 741lbs. with paint & fire extinguisher but no lights, no autopilot and no wheel pants.

Default Nice to see 001 again

Hi Howard,
What a great looking aircraft! I visited Jim in Sequim when he was working on 001 and he answered many questions and gave me a lot of valuable building tips.

Very nice paint scheme. I especially like the treatment in black behind the bubble, it makes the plane look more sleek.

Default Wow!

This is the first time that I've seen the black continuation of the cabin to the turtledeck and it's very, very eye-catching!

Great job,

Default elegance instead of wow

This aircraft is showing what can be achieved with simplicity of graphical design, adding an element of class and elegance.

Its not going to make you turn you head as it taxis by but it has a really beauty to it that would make it very satisfying to own

My favouite is this one.

Congratulations and enjoy your new toy.
