ID:	1437 I last flew in the 2017 season and I didn't want to return another season (2018) with the same plane I've been flying for the last 5 seasons.

    Sooo, at the end of 2017, we moved into our new house and I purchased a 43% kit from Cam McCausey. I didn't have a goal to finish in mind because this was my first giant scale kit build I have ever done. So here is a first glimpse at my new prize.

    PS I tried to upload a photo but we reached some kind of quota ?? I already told Doug about it.

    This has been corrected!!! Thanks Doug!!!!

              It wasn't raining when we planned to take the shots. I wasn't about to skip out, Yea I guess it was a die-hard moment.

                What did you cover it with and how many rolls did take? Looking forward to seeing it fly.

                  Hi Dave
                  I used Monokote - 2 large white rolls 4 small rolls of blue. Under the wings and stabs I used 2 small rolls of black and yellow. Randy Jensen did the painting (cowl, canopy, landing gear, cuffs and wheel pants) The painting took awhile but well worth the wait. The quality of paint was outstanding!

                  Thanks for asking!

                              Hi Bill!

                              Yes it has! I can't wait to maiden my 300.

                              If I play my cards right, I'd like to attend another class in Muncie this April. We'll see.
