Ed beautiful airplane, you say you had it wrapped? Can you give me more details on who did it for you and what costs were involved?
I have kids from 6 area high schools building a Zenith STOL CH 750 with UL Power 350iS engine, our panel is an Avilution panel as we are Beta testers for them. You can go to aviatorsbydesign.com to see our project and the to Aviators By Design Facebook page to see pictures of progress plus some other goodies.
I have a friend Paul Johns who is 102+. He is quite the guy and has been a big mentor and inspiration not only to me but also to my kids. He flew the Boeing 314 Flying Boat for Pan Am during the late 30's and early 40's. At the age of 75 he built a Kit Fox all by himself including paint in 11 months. He had a simple but unique paint scheme that I want to replicate on our airplane in his honor. I just saw him yesterday and he was giving me details of his paint scheme. I have looked at wrap, but was not quite sure about it. I would love to hear your input about it. I would also like to hear more about how and what you used to finish your cockpit - looks really nice!
Are you coming to Oshkosh this summer by chance - we will have our plane on display at the Teen Build and Fly Projects which is just in front of the Homebuilders Hangar. I am chairman of that area and we get a lot of traffic.
