With fabric covering soon to commence, I have been forced to make a final choice on color and design for the paint scheme. I stumbled across an image of the beautiful Pitcairn PA-7S on the EAA site. I think the black and yellow scheme suits the Skyote well. The Marchadier and Bridges planes already sport the Pitcairn logo so I am going to do something a little different there.
I decided to deviate from the PA-7 scheme by leaving the vertical stabilizer black rather than yellow. I think it makes the airplane look a little longer and also makes a good presentation for the Skyote logo. In regards to the logo, I think I will modify the standard logo with a surround that includes "Skyote Aeromarine".
I have a set of Matt Lahti's carbon fiber Cessna 140/170 wheel pants. The look pretty good on the airplane but I haven't decided if I will use them or not.
