Hello, I see folks with these beautiful renderings of paint schemes, and I would like to do that.  But I am totally at a loss of even where to begin.First, where do you get a scale drawing of the plane ( I need the Cruzer)?.  Second, Is there an easy program that you used to lay our the colors?  I don't have any experience with paint programs.  So, for example, if I want to put a checkerboard pattern on the tail, can I pull up a checkerboard template and just paste in on there.  Is it smart…See More

Dual Throttle Control

PDK is close.  Was also thinking tail kit building in my Hapeville apartment.  But the factory event taking my wife fits better.  Our St Louis home is close to Mexico and want her to see what's involved.  My RV12 bulder frind and I visited Zenith and want to return this summer.  Are you going to Sun n Fun?

Joe,  Whereabouts in Atlanta are you?  I'd like to see your tail kit when it comes in if you wouldn't mind a visit.  I live near Canton.

Hey Joe,  Like you I'm considering the Cruzer and haven't yet started building.  I going to Sun-n-Fun this year and hope to try the Cruzer on for size.
