Thought a update would be in order, a look at the last 2 of the 1st 6 of my "Beer Barrel Racers" series Riley Mod B color schemes. If I am lucky I'll be able to post all 6 CS's by the weekend sometime.

When I returned from Vietnam, I was stationed at San Antonio for 2 years and for a while we could visit the Peal Brewery and get some free suds. All of the planes in this series will be based upon 2 basic color schemes. If someone would like to try their hand, I could post these 2 schemes also, but bee warned, the left side does not match up well with the right and some hand manipulating will be in order. A pleasing result can be attained as you can see, you just can't cut and paste one side to the other.This weekend be sure to thank a VET.

Working on a new batch of Riley Mod B color schemes. This will be a series of what I'm calling my "Beer Barrel Racers", and when finished will number about 20. Some of them go back a ways as they are ones I remember when I was a kid and dad and his friends were watching foot ball games. Some of the beers are gone,Dads gone and all of his friends are gone, but some great memories still remain.View attachment 124502View attachment 124503View attachment 124504View attachment 124505View attachment 124506View attachment 124507
Awesome color schemes where can I find them? Mostly the silver and blue Coors.

Thanks U-Bird, I love the Beer Barrel Racer CS's, only problem is, they are making me thirsty while I try to decide which one to fly first.

I have 4 more that I'm working on in this series, here's a peak at my next series which i call my "Golden Age Air Racers" series. There will be 12 of these , all with vintage Oil Company logos from around the world.
My favorite Beers are "Bock" types and my favorite brand is giving mr a fit trying to make it stand out yet retain a harmonious vintage color flow.
For all, Have a Happy Thanksgiving, for those that celibrate, and a safe holiday season. Here's a peak at my 1st Golden Age Air Racer.
Thanks all for the compliments .
ASJ, how is our wonderful Mk IX Spitfire coming along. She is going to be a plane worth spending LOTS of time doing a CS to make her come alive. ANTICIPATING !!!!!!!!!
