Default Velocity N44VF Paint

For those that don't follow my site, our paint is coming along nicely, we're just moving the fuselage out of the hangar so we can put the blue on the winglets.

Here is the scheme an a couple of shots.

That looks like one very nice paint job. Let us see it all assembled. I bet it will look awesome.

While your plane looks beautiful, you do realize that you've put dark blue paint on a very high stress area where the wing and winglet join. This is a very bad idea with room temperature cure epoxies.

I strongly recommend rethinking this paint scheme prior to flight.

Another update. We're not *quite* ready to fly her, but we had a mini-Velocity fly-in at my airport this weekend, so we rolled her out in her new diggs. You can check out the others in attendance at Velocity Midwest Flyin 2010

Marc - Note I have winglet 'socks' made to cover them when she's parked on the ramp.

We applied our vinyl from Air Graphics this weekend, and I think it came out very nice.

If you do, don't park near me. It will make my plane look bad
