Default G-TWLV Gets Some Paint!

G-TWLV has had some stripey paint applied courtesy of Mick Allen & Son Aircraft Resprays (UK based). It had its first public outing to the RV Bonus Day Fly-In at the historic Duxford Aerodrome on Saturday.

(Scheme was shamelessly based on an Australian RV-7A belonging to Brian Degenhardt that I saw on the VAF pages ).











PS Blue and grey are metallic and look fabulous in the sunlight - an RV-12 badge has yet to be attached to the fin.

Default Looks GREAT!

Very nice scheme, it transforms the lines of the -12.

Default Nice To See

The painted airframe looks really nice Jerry.

Also nice to see a painted RV-12 prop. But that might change after a few decent trips!!

John.

Thanks people for the comments. Edited the post - it was an RV-7A not 9, oh and the prop isn't painted, standard Sensenich.

... oh, and it's not an RV-12, it's actually the new RV-14

Just joking! It's one of the best schemes I've seen. Looks great, Jerry.

Default WOW

This is by far the prettiest scheme I have yet to see on any airplane. Very well done! Do you have a link to the original scheme on the other RV?

Edit:Found it! Posted for comparison.

Any shots of the interior colors?

I can take it - we British are made of strong stuff....

Here's a link to the original (RV-7A....) scheme (post #254):

Interior shots of G-TWLV:

And I've just got the 'painted Sensenich' comment - we British can be a bit slow.

I have to say WOW like the others. When I was looking at it at first, paying attention to the cool paint, I thought it was a 7! Very nice. Have fun showing it off!
