Re: Do You Need Paint?
I like paint. It's like getting a new bike. I rebuild totaled bikes, so I have no remorse about painting a perfectly good bike. This one was hurt real bad, I did get it going with most of the original plastic.
Then after a while, I wanted to take care fo the cosmetics with a custom paint job. You know how BMW racing stuff is white with red and blue stripes? Well I found a photo of the M1 car. I liked it, so that is the theme I went with. I called it M1.2 .After a few years that got old. Time to change it up. This time satin black! I like this one the best! I needed a name for it. It looked stealthy. I was wondering, did Germany have a stealth airplane? Well they do, but it is all angular like the F117. So I kept lookin till I found the Horten 229. Back in 44 Germany was workin on a flying wing! with BMW jet engines! THAT'S IT!
