I like the stripes too (See we really do have similar taste). And you will thank me when you are flying on an overcast day or low in front of trees or terrain and visibility is low and the camo does its job. In that split second when all perspective is lost and the plane disappears, you can still track it because the only thing visible are the invasion stripes!

Good luck,
Kevin

Looking good jiggz. Looks like you and me are at about the same place. Who will finish first?

I had to use the Freewing exhaust because motion was out of them. I also got a Freewing pilot. Thought it looked a little better than stock and it was only a few bucks.

OK I'm lagging behind here. I better get the airbrush out and put down some paint to catch up to jiggz!

does anyone have a picture of an instrument panel I could use on this plane? I'll look for some on google images as well.

Thanks,
Kevin
