Anyone have the original Thorp logo artwork. I want to have it painted on our new bird.

If you want it painted on instead of a sticker have one made as a stencil or paint mask. When you cut it you peel out the part you would normally leave. Then stick it on long enough to paint and peel it back off. You can match your other colors perfectly that way.

This video shows a t-18 being wrapped.

I wouldn't trust it. Why fabric cover an all metal airplane? Don't want to wind up like Wittman should the vinyl quit the job and detach.

I have to agree with Steve they didnt do Worthy's old airplane any favors (thought the original paint scheme looked nice). That being said, when I heard Worthy had donated his airplane to that museum I feared it would end up on the back lot. Nice to see they put some $$ into it and are using it as an educational platform. One of the few round backs that ended up with a bubble canopy and looked good!
