New Sport Goodyear
« on: May 16, 2018, 10:44:28 PM »
Here's a Margaret June Sportsman Goodyear I just finished working on. It features a paint scheme that's very similar to "Yellow Peril", a Formula 1 "super Cassutt" previously flown by astronaut "Hoot" Gibson. The plane was originally built by David Clark of Wichita. It was primed and almost ready for paint when I got it. Not being one to leave well enough alone, I sanded on it sporadically for a year before painting it. It's about to go to its new home, and hopefully it'll fly in our contest next month.

How did you get that color yellow?
There will be a sunny day and we will fly our airplanes.
