It's really hard to beat the looks of that short wing. And the yellow and blue color really make the wing look shorter........ Looks great.

If that's what a Junkyard Special looks like, an Oshkosh Champion must be absolutely incredible.

Joe Blank told me the same thing while I was planning my paint scheme, so I decided to incorporate one.

I am so glad I did.

I think of him every time I look at it.

Looks awesome. Great color selection.

I saw the new RV-12 you did and am very impressed with that as well. You have an eye for color.
Good choice.
