Tom, you crack me up!
Actually I have been thinking about paint schemes and do have a few ideas, but the shape of the -12 is very unlike the traditional RV shape so many of the popular RV schemes won't work well. I do have some ideas but I think I should get the plane a bit further along before spending too much time on that.

Still, as most RV builders know, the plane sort of takes shape in your mind as an overall vision well in advance. :-)

Default Welcome Home

Welcome Back Randy,

What better way to be rebaptized in the Pacific Northwest than working on an IFR rating. Oh yes, and letís not forget about working on a build as well. There are some of us who believe you put the S in Superman.

All the best,

This sounds like walking on water, maybe best thing since invention of sliced bread.

We're talking RV-12 here, built from kit with pre-punched holes and plug-n-play wiring. I think my kids could do it...
