Looks great Matt! Do you have a picture of the wing top too? Looks like it has a neat design on top of the wing also.

I will have to take one. The wing is similar to the fuse, the horizontal stab is solid silver. All of the checkers fade. I have to credit Fernando for inspiration on the fuselage checker lines. We will be flying formation Oshkosh 2014!

Here's a picture of Charlie's RV. He said he would chime in and tell you about it.

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
