The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. Bertrand Russell, 1872 - 1970. Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. C.S. Lewis, 1898 - 1963.
Any ideas yet Nowi? I have painted hundreds of skins over the years so don't be shy when asking if something can be done. As food for thought, here is a livery I did some time back for my pilot in one of Rick's challenges.
Looks great! The only change I would prefer would be to drop the stripes on the fuselage, leave it green like the forward fuselage, and add Horrido! text on both sides. I really like the horrido font, too.
It's a bt hard to tell, but it the cowl blue or white? I'm blue-green colorblind. Either is fine, although a white cowl might go well with the white tail.
Alrighty then Nowi, stripes have been removed, (wasn't actually sure of those myself), slogan has been painted on each side of the fuselage, and engine cowling has been changed to white. Also, the base finish on the kite is more of a brownish wash than it is green. Your new mount is currently at Boistrancourt where they are finishing up the rigging on it after which it will be sent along to you. If you will PM your email addy to me I can send you the zip file.
Glad you approve Sir! I made one final change and repainted the bit of blue forward of the horizontal stabilizer so that it comes to a point rather than being flat across as it was before - follows the lines better this way.
I will box it up and send it your way. Happy flying!
Thanks Fullofit, but I don't do houses, or windows either for that matter. Oddly enough I will do doors, provided you first take the door off the hinges and remove all hardware, strip the old paint, sand to 240 grit, prime, mask, and tack it all down, then drop it off at my place. At that point I'll be glad to paint it for you, as long as the outside temperature is between 68 and 74 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity is below 30%. Oh, and you will need to bring along your own paint, brushes, stir sticks, turpentine, rags - and beer. Nearly forgot about the beer, that would have been a stopper for sure.
