Hi Ralle,
*he might not speak or write good english (as some other americans don't, too ) but he's better at painting than all of us are, he's a pro*
looking forward to your El., cheers, RD

El Bandito


Ralf and Gregg and Ralle, I too will be spraying my El Bandito in lacquers and then a gloss clearcoat over them with a two part auto paint. I do however need to devise or come up with a good paint scheme that is worthy for such a beautiful plane I am trying to figure out one that will stand out from the crowd but will look nice and slick as well. Gregg are you going for a Military scheme or a Civilian color scheme on yours? What paint do you plan to spray on your plane Gregg. I can tell you where to get the Lacquers as long as you dont dime me off to the AQMD
Joe

PS: If anyone has any color schemes for me to spray my El Bandito I would appreciate all ideas,
Thanks Joe

Looking good Ralle, I am really looking forward to getting my plane. And I think the word that your looking for is

Filled or filled the weave of the fiberglass.
But we all understood what your telling us keep the pictures coming.

Hi,

I painted the bandit. That is my most beautiful paint scheme. I dont know: yellow and blue, or orange and blue, orange and violet, or yellow and violet.
