600 miles round trip and 9 hours in the car, the job is done.... it was nice talking with Brent and seeing his handy work in the shop. The guy is a master!

I have only passed through Tehachapi on the way to Las Vegas but it's a neat little town perched at 4000 ft. There was snow on the surrounding hills.

Can't wait see Brent go to town on her I know it's going to be great!

WOW, Brent looks good in that picture, no circles under his eyes, the garage looks clean, looks like that plane of yours RON ended up in the right place.

So how long do you think Brent can stand there holding the plane, let's have a contest.

My too but first there will be many photo shoots... me and my bud that is a professional photographer are planning a whole photo shoot. I'm going to be a publicity hound with this plane I've been looking into getting it aboard the USS Hornet for pictures on the deck ( if we can get it up there)

Hi Ron,

nice to know all the journey went well, avery time I go to the States I'm always amazed about how much space you guys have available there and how never-ending the roads looks like on those state-to-state trip.
Looking forward on building pics and report from Brent, good luck.

Thanks Gianluca,
This is one big country that's forsure... I feel very blessed to live in the central valley of California. It blows my mind sometimes just how many big time tourist attractions I live within a few hours drive in any direction. 1 hour to San Francisco, Sacramneto or Napa Valley, 2 Hours to Carmel, Santa Cruz or Monterey, 3 hours to Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Reno, Serria Nevada Mountians or 6 hours to L.A., Hollywood, Disney Land.... really lucky

Are B-3's even real? and does Brent work on them? I didn't even ask what he does for work

He does do beautiful work that is forsure! I'm going to be thrilled! this is way better than selling it. I could never afford a yellow twin ARF there like $5000 dollars without landing gear. I'll be half that with the landing gear and all the air cyclinders... I'll be into this plane about the same as a BVM electra ready to fly

Also guys Brent turned me on to Callie Soden at Callie Graphics. He showed me some of her work and its really nice. In fact it looks just as good or better than what I've gotten from Pro Mark.... but she is dirt cheap. Too cheap in fact

Pro Mark wants $400 to $600 dollars to do the graphics for this plane!! I had them do the graphics for my 1/5 P-51 and they did a really nice job, but I paid $350 for them.

I asked Callie for a price to do the whole F-18 project and she said $40 bucks shipped!!!!
I have to pay her more than that... I can't see how that would even cover the materials and shipping. So if your looking for graphics she is the go to person as far as I'm concerned... I have sent her over all the pictures and two bobs decals to blow up and have something to work with
