Beautiful plane and a stunning site to fly. Congratulations on the maiden. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun with her.

Ditto all the previous comments - sweet looking plane with what looks like great craftsmanship in the manufacturing/ build. And as for that location...

Yep- big enough for me though! Only just a bit smaller than a X-models Stingray.

Will you stop that Chris! Like waving a hamburger and onions in front of a starving man!

A beautiful example. I'm guessing that was a specially ordered colour scheme?

It has been a very cold/late spring here in Norway this year. I think it was around 5-6 degrees Celsius that day, not counting the chill factor. I dont wear these (thermal) suits my self, but yes, they are very warm

The maiden was great, but unfortunately its not mine model. I was just the guy behind the camcorder

No, the basic white 'n orange is I have noted in stock here and there in European shops. The rest I applied...
