Bringing back the dead!!!!!
After numerous attempts to match the fluorescent green paint I gave up and set this project aside back in 2016. Been staring at it ever since. I have decided to remove the green and blue colors and replace these with Monokote True Red, Orange and Yellow covering. Don't know if I will get this finished before the snow flies but it is moving along. Sorry for waking up this old thread but would like like bring it to a close.

Thank you both for the comments, the scheme is Plain Jane by today's standards for sure. It more like the plane I saw fly at Osh Gosh in the early 90's.

The covering work is complete and began painting. With a little luck I will get this plane in the air before the snow flies here in south western Pennsylvania.

Had the One Design out at the field yesterday, did not get it running, no spark. I got the engine from an estate sale about 10 years ago. I thought had I had checked the spark when I put the jumper on the TechAero IBEC. I pulled the ignition off another D&B engine that I have, might fly today?

Thanks Bob. A fellow contacted me looking for a cowl, instead I plan to ship him the mold, I have too many things going on to make a part for him.
