Jerry, bring yours to Oshkosh next year and we can get a formation picture taken!

Okay, the RV stayed at home this year. I'll start planning for 2014, then.

Really like your paint scheme and colors! Beautiful! Is it permissible to use your plan/colors with a few mods? Also...is your roll bar and other canopy frame components gray...or is it white...hard to tell from the pics. I'm installing the canopy now. Any advice about painting the frame components and roll bar before I install the canopy? Thank you so much!

And another one, just back from the painter. Wings still need to be done.

Looking good in the sun, Joeri!

Buzz - no copyright (as you can see!) so feel free to copy. Roll bar and the rest of the untrimmed interior panel is grey - actually Hartzell grey from an aerosol (hold on - 'rattle cans' to you lot) coated in clear lacquer. Polishes up nicely.

I would get everything you can painted before you attach the clear bits.

Blue is quite dark when in the shade. When its perpendicular to the sun it gets a few tones lighter. I will post the color numbers when I get them from the painter (grey and blue are Peugeot metallic colors).
The painter loved the lines (not) . We failed a bit at the aft window (white is a bit small).

Thanks Jerry!

Just a few more things to add and it will be complete. It is a very fun plane to fly with great visibility, quick responsiveness and so simple. Great job Van's Aircraft, thanks again.


Scott,

I would like to add your RV-12 to the RV-12 Photo Album. If that is OK with you, could you send me:

Date of First Flight
SN
Place of First Flight

Thanks!

Don

Pretty little airplane for sure. Not "over done," but just right.
Would like to see a little subtle accent on each wheel fairing though.
