26 Globetrotter: I agree with most of the comments thus far--too "fun" and not professional. In BD's defense, however, I have heard on another forum that the Union Jac
27 Branvan3k: Globetrotter, I doubt that is the case - remember the rudder must be painted in the final scheme before the rest of the plane even gets its first coat
