Well I've been too busy with the business, life, and painting display models of prototype, electric-hybrid, regional airliners!!

 

Crazy Stuff: Acrylics over Dupli-Color Lacquer primer over a 3-D printed model of a soon-to-be 1/1 scale prototype.

Although a lot of fun, I don't think I'll be doing this again any time too soon :mental:

Stuka,
Firstly CONGRATULATIONS on getting the job done with fine precision and secondly meeting the CEO of Zunum Aero.

Not everyday one gets the opportunity to do what you did for a new concept in Aviation SO well done.

:clap2: :thumbsup:

I read your "paint &build " thread in your link and goodness you were patient when the wing cracked; but you have done an AMAZING WORK ...

Painting and Decals *from Matt* looks SUPERB.

Stuka your painting et al is IMPECCABLY IMMACULATE....

Liked it... the jet design reminds ME of Honda's new Jet.

Anyway AWESOME work.

KUDOS :bow:

{So has he offered you a job there ! :) }

Thanks for the kind comments!

Mr. Knapp was exactly what I expected from a man with multiple degrees in aeronautical engineering from MIT: intelligent, calm, and measured.

It was a real kick to work with him if only for ~10 days or so :)

I'm just glad I didn't have another issue with the model before I finished.

I was running out of both patience and energy :BANGHEAD2:
