Flying Tigers over San Fran

Recommended Posts

Still painting this girl, but thought she needed a flight (ok...I really wanted to fly her, hehe)

Climbing out, the Golden Gate peaking through the clouds

In the climb....over 10,000 and climbing to cruise

Letting down into Anchorage...flaps coming down and nice puffy clouds to ride through....

At the Cargo depot....DHL getting loaded next to me as I crack open the nose door for unloading.

Not sure when she'll be done as there is a lot of metal and detail work to do...but she just so looks nice in flight as she is I had to take her on a trip.  I know...."Spend more time painting and less time flying Steve"...Hehe....I used to do that, trying to balance my flying/painting time now.

Thanks John!

Actually, this is my best metal work:

Hopefully when I get done with the Queen, all her alpha layer work, she'll look as good as this MadDog.

There is so much work that goes into painting metal.  Being a bare metal fan, the effort is worth it for me. 🙂

Hi Steve,

Fantastic work - got hooked on the Flying Tigers livery back on Paul Golding's 727 - flew that one a great deal... You're certainly a master of metal... Psst - weren't you "retired" ? Just when you thought you were out... LOL...

And Eastern too - WOW - another favorite - MadDog X ? Hmm - I don't do commercial air often - but when I do that MD80 would be right up my alley - hmm - maybe Santa will knock a few bucks off it this season ? It's been on my list for a while...

Regards,
Scott
