I'm pretty sure it just looks like they are bent because it shows it from different angles.

Yeah, it would be suck to get such an aerobatic plane that can only be flown like a pico tiger moth

Wait till I get in hand. Then you will be excited as you will be wanting one. Its been over a year since I had a Pitts in my hangar and man do I miss just jinxing around in the sky. I am going to have a very busy August.

Would love to have this one!But really,could they have chosen a more lame color scheme for a Pitts Repaint is a must! Maybe with any luck,they will offer another scheme like they did with the model 12. There's just too many beautiful color schemes out there for this plane.

I think the paint job on the current offering is perfect. Its minimal, easy to orient and its as close to an unpainted airframe as you will get. Considering that we always here how nice it would be to have an unpainted airframe, most would be grateful for its minimalist approach.

Even if they are applied, they should come right off and the plane is white so its not like your messing up paint or anything. Then you can custom paint and decal the plane to perfection. And I most certainly will report how it comes. I got notice today that the plane is backordered until tomorrow. So a minor delay but no biggie.
