N46677 Lives Again

Post mtbparker »

This goes straight to my fondest childhood memories. My dad owned N46677 when my brother and I were just little kids. Every Saturday, we were up at the airfield. I'm the little tike there in the blue shirt.

This repaint is fictional. The real N46677 is a C172K model. But who cares. LOL! :D

All credit goes to a great friend of mine who took the time to repaint this for me.

SLICK! Nice recreation. I like those old school patterns. They just seem to flow better for this plane. Keep up the good work! 8)

Love the two little kids in the back. I can see the family flying along and the dad turns around and says "OK YOU 2, STOP FIGHTING or I'LL TURN THIS PLANE AROUND!!!! :lol: :P

Oh! You can bet that we got yelled at back there. :D

I can also tell you that I learned the lesson, at a very young age, about going to the bathroom before you take off. That was probably the longest 1/2 hour of my life while dad diverted to some airport along the way.

Sadly, it was sold long ago. The national databases have it somewhere out in Michigan. But I can't confirm.

For the paint, I'll have to check. It's not mine to give away.

Last night, he put the finishing touches on it -- the small things like the cowl handles, etc. It really looks nice.
