Over 400 hours to paint that beauty. . . . . WOW ! ! ! ! At 8 hours a day, that's almost 2 months. That has to be one of the best paint schemes I have EVER seen on any plane. Please extend my congratulations to the person who painted it. he is truly a master.


Absolutely agree! He is one talented man!! The detail in the scheme is amazing. The closer you look, the more you see. Attached are Mirco's from the photo shoot last week.
