hummm, I looked at your paint scheme and you will be shocked to see mine.

I am expected to bring her home this weekend and once it is assembled I will post pictures.

It is exciting times indeed.

Jonathan and his team at Evoke/Plane Schemers is as good as it gets.

Prepare to be amazed at the attention to detail and the quality of the finished product. I know we were.

Congrats!

Here's the scheme - the colors are candy apple red, black, silver, all with a subtle metal flake (it looks white in the pic but it's silver).

That's going to be a great looking RV14.
I wish the canopy on the real plane looked like the one in the picture. Maybe someone will develop an aftermarket one of these days.

That looks fantastic - I can't wait to see the final product!

I've spoken with Jonathan about doing my -14A when it's ready late next year or early 2020 and am really looking forward to working with him.

Jonathan and crew are awesome to work with. I'm probably a pain in the arse constantly asking for updates and showing up unexpectedly (they are only about 20 minutes from me). Very friendly, professional, and most importantly willing to communicate. These guys really love what they do, you can tell.

If any of you visit, PM me and I'll meet you at the fantastic Colombian restaurant just off the airport, it's delicious
