Cessna 182 in-flight pics

I usually fly my little planes by myself,so I never had anybody to take any in flight shots.I was out at the club field yesterday on one of those perfect no wind(but hot) afternoons and Gerald was kind enough to take some pictures.

If it wasn't for the covering showing the ribs, you would almost swear it was full size

As the pics were loading, I was thinking of how to word the same thing, then I got to the bottom, and you'd beat me to it. LOL

Seriously though, that is absolutely marvelous. Excellent plane I must say.

Wow!!!!!

Absolutely mesmerizing! Looks like a real 182 on final. What do you use to make your markings, e.g. do you paint them with acrylic? I think that you'd get a lot of us to bite (myself included) if you collaborated with Doug again at Mountain Models to kit your delightful new bird. What's next on your building agenda? How about a WWI biplane like a Sopwith Pup that's suitable for a GWS DXA motor?

Holeee!!! As stated above, if not for the ribs! Truly a work of art.

Doug, are you kitting this? Please say yes.

Another Beauty!

Glad I don't have to fly at a club with guys like you and Gerald. I'd be too embarassed to show up with my plastic covered sticks I call airplanes. I'd have to find a new hobby.
