Default In Search of RV8 Painter recommendations for "Tuskegee Airmen" paint scheme

I have an RV8 that I purchased (years ago) with the goal of flying an Original Tuskegee Airman in it and have it painted in the "Red Tail" scheme of one of the airmen.

The goal is to be able to carry forth the story of the Airmen long after they are all gone. I am running out of time as there are not that many still with us!

Thus I seek recommendations of someone who is reasonable, good and is not backed up for two years.

If anyone wishes to be part of this effort, feel free to contact me "off-list".
(jclarkmail) on the site called "gmail".


Thanks!

Jonathan McCormick, Plane Schemer/Evoke Aviation.

Jonathan is a world class designer and his paint shop is as good as you will find.

He is busy and not inexpensive.

CB - give John Stahr a call or drop him a note - yes, he’s busy, but he loves worthy projects, and he also loves to come to your location and work long hours...so he can get jobs done in short calendar times.
