  1. Looks very nice, Gougar ??

  2. Nicely done, Allan (and you have the means to correct the typo)… 🙂

  3. Nice work, John! I’m a fan of dark blue airplanes.

  4. Simple dark blue paint schemes are not simple to do. In looking at the photos I don’t see any orange peeling or pitting in the paint surface. The paint looks perfect Mr. Withers.

  5. Excellent build, great finish.

  6. Allan, that’s a pretty Cougar!

  7. Saw the real one when I was 13. This looks very nice.

  8. You did a fantastic job with the finish. It really looks good. If I’m not mistaken there is one of these planes on display on a pole at a rest area near Pensacola on Interstate 10.
