I usually don't build for other people other than close friends at the field, and then it'll be one of my flat jets or a combat ship...nothing too complicated or time consuming......too much like work....lol ......However, the fellow that helped me with my very first maiden flight was an S-3 pilot in the Navy.....over 1500 hours and 450 cat shots/traps....can't say no to that....and you never forget those that help you.....So I tried to duplicate the squadron markings of his aircraft.

This is the second aircraft I cut with the E3......

Here's the maiden of Skip's S-3
