Damn, I love it!!! Glad you went with the green. A bit under served in the airlines and racing.

Some perceive green to be unlucky.  Indeed, I have a friend who will not ride a green motorcycle or drive a green car for that reason.  He thinks he will crash if he does.
I think he's being foolish and have owned two green bikes (which I crashed no more or less often than I did bikes of other colours).  All my cars however have been white.
I chose green because then I can say "Air Gully International - flying under the Great Green G".
This evening I painted the undercarriage & hook wells and the inside of the doorway.

I never could figure out why that was?? Green is one of my favorite colors... it's the color of plants and money.... the opposite of unlucky for me so I never understood the superstition.  ;D

Red is an unlucky  colour for me, saying  that, just  about  every  vehicle  I have owned  in the 30 plus years of riding/ driving  has been  an unreliable  pain in the proverbial.

P.S, nice  build  Fred ;D :thumbsup:

Thanks Chris.

I am ignoring this while I get the 'dyne 2.0 finished.  Shouldn't be too long and then I can polish the Ragnar off.  It just needs undercarriage, doors and the hook painted and the missing window sorted out.

Progress now the 'dyne is done.
I have made and painted an escape hatch to replace the missing window and also painted the the clear areas above the front seats as escape hatches.
As it is a civilian aircraft it has the bang seats disabled but the fact that it still carries out carrier landings means there needs to be some means of emergency pilot egress.

Seeing as these are built for arrested landings and catapult launches then it strikes me that it would be feasible to operate an air service flying them off a city centre rooftop deck...

City centre, so more likely to end up in an office, shop or bar.  But that's why you bribe officials, to make that sort of thing go away.  ;)

The Ragnar is an eight seat (five passengers, three crew) carrier capable luxury biz-jet.
Modifications made by zA include lowering the cabin floor into what was the bomb bay, turning the nose into a luggage compartment, moving the engines outboard, decommissioning the crew ejector seats and installing escape hatches.

Great idea well executed.

What does it use the sonobuoy launchers for, though?  ;) (The multitude of small round hatches on the underside of rear fuse.)
