Good job Greg. Nothing like the feeling of that first flight in a machine you built.

Congratulations Greg! Nice looking 14 you built.
Always a great motivator to see a 14 leave the nest.

Thanks for all the kind comments. The paint scheme was done by the very talented Jonathan McCormick, "The Plane Schemer". The actual paint was base coat clear coat PPG DCC done in expert detail by Michael Payne, Director at the Port Townsend Aero Museum at 0S9. I would highly recommend both of these professionals. I could not be happier with how N14ZP looks.

My one bit of advice would be to get started early with your paint scheme.

Greg,

Congrats on your first flight! Beautiful airplane. You mentioned before that we were doing parallel builds and my first flight was Saturday July 22nd!!!! Just flew patterns at 2000' over Renton (RNT) for an hour at high power. It flies great! Here's a pic I took looking at the Boeing plant, Mercer Island and Seattle in the distance on about lap 16...

What a kick!!

Very elegant paint scheme Greg. Hope you don't mind if I end up painting mine similar. I can't believe the procrastination involved in deciding on what clothes to put on the aircraft.
Nicely done. 👍
