True,I was using the term generically - and couldn't find the flexible fix (from boats) I wanted.  Turns out it really is just a thick paint - and I'm having it all stripped and entirely resprayed.  Sop would do it inexpensively and it would just continue peeling otherwise.

PC problems - hope this isn't a repeat post!

Thanks for the welcome.

Yes the 4 seater looks great and would probably perfect and familiar for those here who get their hours on the Alarus.  BUT, I understand that any kit build is an EXP, which means they don't work in club situations (essentially rental).
Mine (a 2003) has a large spot of paint peeling on the upper cowling.  I thought it was gel coat but understand it is just a thick paint.  I'm thinking of just using some bondo type filler - feather it in - and hit with some white spray.  Do you think that will work, or am I going to have it (professionally) spray repaired?

The aircraft is my own design and build called the Kingfisher. It is a 2 seat aircraft with a Jabiru 6 cylinder engine. It cruises at 1309 Kts and lands at 38 kts with full flap.

Thanks for the mock-up...-:)
I like the rivet touch!! looks more real. I will try to add a Round Rotec engine.
I took the dimensions on the FWF of the CH750 and the Rorec2800. The round cowling will have to be bigger than the standard cowlings by about 2 inches on the diametre. Should look real nice ....I hope..
I really like the ligthening up of the green on the wing tips... great job. i wasn't sure myself about the wing tips being green ..
We sure are having fun with our planes!!

Hello James, thanks for the friend request. I like your artwork. I am planning on red, white and some other color maybe gold. Something along the lines of number 16.

James, just having my plane finished (750) at Can Zac in Kitchener. The fellows there said touch base with you to see what you could come up with for a white plane with dark blue accents

I'm glad there's someone out there willing to share the creativity. Fantastic paint design ideas!! Of course now I have to narrow it down from the 25+ that I like.......

Hey James,
How about some WWII paint schemes :0
Like maybe a 701 with the flying tiger mouth...
Or a 601 with a P-51 paint scheme?...
There is that one 601, "lil bruiser"; she looks good.
Sorry, I spaced the owners name but its a corvair powered 601.
