  4. Being as I speak of using a projector occasionally I am posting a projected image. Yea, I got mine back today.
    This is displayed for wing marking, one has to imagine a wing or paper is on the wall and instead of 4 feet wide full wing width. This pic is one of the lower resolution pics (137kb) just to show how well or easy it would be to get drawings off of. And, lights are on it just looks dark because image is so bright.

  5. After mentioning the projector Sunday I went and ordered a screen, it showed up today. No more lines from the siding of the patio walls on movie night and I don't have to clear a wall in the shop either. It is 10 feet wide so it should accommodate any build I will ever do.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    After long contemplation, I have decided to not do Brad's scheme. Oh I absolutely love the scheme there is no doubt. And again my thanks goes out to @Luchnia for locating it. I feel it was might "BIG" of him to pay it forward and share the proceeds with others. Yet another sparkling example of what this hobby should reflect.

    It's not the complexity of the scheme that concerns me. After all, the wings are a walk in the park. Underside of the wings and stabs might be a bit challenging but I think I could do it. And as far as the fuse is concerned, all a guy really needs to do is "template" the design, lay it out on the covering "halved", then once the template is transferred...duplicate in mirror image for the other side. Really it should not be that difficult. The reason however I have decided against using the scheme is when I started this little quest, I wanted something unique and original. Something that not everyone had. With a duplicate in Europe and with Terry's rendition of the scheme, I don't want to re-re-reduplicate the same scheme. If there are two, there may be more. Granted, both the Europe scheme and Terry's are impeccable to say the least. Both incredibly well done and perfect spot on matches of Brad Wursten's MXS-R. But coming full circle, I really wanted something no one else has. So instead of taking a chance with another already previously done scheme, I have decided to "pen" out my own design. I can tell you all that I will for sure be attempting the bottom of the wings as originally stated. If anyone can pull of a complex and mind boggling scheme like that and make it look nice, anything else would be childs play.

    I want to apologize to anyone that had their hopes set in anticipation of the scheme being done on my 330. And I do want to thank everyone..."EVERYONE" for their indulgence and participation in the covering scheme contest. I just hope everyone can understand why my decisions have been made as they have been. The 330 scheme was chosen as my final "re-cover" for awhile. In fact, the 330 will be my last HUGE plane built or covered for a long time. I just have way too many things going on lately that I am finding it very difficult to even find time to devote to my planes. So with that, I wanted to make my 330 my "Magnum-Opus", so to speak.

    Everyone is still welcome to follow the Build/Covering thread exclusively here on GSN. And I wish to convey that I still look forward to everyones input, suggestions and ideas. After all, that is what this site is all about, right? Sharing....

    Thanks for understanding and for all your support fellas.

    No big deal we all enjoyed going through the exercise and we all have a good collection of paint scheme to research. After all you have to be happy with your plane end of story. But you will keep us informed so that we all can keep you on the right road of success with the plane.

    I have a one off scheme I could share and I promise no one has ever done. But I fear I would get banned if I posted it.

    You cannot do things like that. Anyone who reads this is going to want to see it. Unless it just plane crude. Ok first you are going have to give us a hint.
