Default Looking good, John!

I like the paint scheme a lot. It is very similar to the colors I've been wanting on my 10, although that's a ways off, for me.

The chrome strips, are they vinyl too?

Hi John,

I saw your aircraft at Oshkosh.

Looking good,I like the Baja's in the wing tips.

The Show Planes cowl looks great,any feed back on it ?

Cheers,

Yes they are... it's very difficult material to work with and takes some real planning.

Cheers,
I really like it. Bryan is a great resource. The only issue is fitting the intake manifold with the cowl. It's a time consuming process to get it right.

Default Wow

Very nice. Raising the bar again. I'd say that MT propeller is one of the major contributing factors to your smooth running engine. These MTs are amazing. Put a two blade on my 182 and words cannot even describe the improvement over the McCauley. Way quieter too. Nice plane

.... And of course, Modern Image here in San Diego for the vinyl work.... Truly pro work!!! and this was their first plane... They usually just mess around with Ferraris, and Lamborghinis...
Awesome looking plane! However, with a name like Johnny Walker shouldn't it be painted red? Johnny Walker Red... think about it...

Yessir. I picked it up last April from San Diego. The previous owner had several airplanes and was selling them all because he felt it was time. The folks on this board helped me locate it.
