I see your website is down, I don't know if this is a good time, but do you take suggestions?
I think it would be totally awesome to have a CAP skin for the FT commuter

I am with civil air patrol and want to build the FT commuter and paint it like this so I can show off the capabilities of foamboard airplanes to the rest of my squadron:cool:
 
@Rasterize, oh I feel your pain of not flying going to school , I am finishing my masters and I have a plane started that I am skinning. Skinning makes a big difference in the appearance of a plane. I saw the video with you and Josh at flite fest and I have been obsessed with skinning ever since, painting is great, Jon Overstreet is a master with it in the master series planes. I just love the look of a skinned plane.

Bummer your printer is down, hope you have time to start cranking out skins again. I can't imagine the amount of snow you and @BATTLEAXE deal with yearly. Central Indiana does not have too much snow but it is in the 20's. I have a few friends in London Ontario who tell me to stop being a baby and go fly!

Learning HTML5 as I write this. Really need to work on my printer (both 2D and 3D). I have not dealt with snow for a few years now. Was 68 in Tucson today. :) Left the snow/taxes/etc in NY.

I remeber some "mild" upstate NY winters. Highs in the mid 20's to mid 30's. Bits of snow here and there, gray as far as the eye could see. Good times. Jk not jk rotflmao! Seriously I feel for you guys. It got down to the low 40's last night if that gives you some comfort. :) Forecast 78 on Sat 77 on Sun. Yeah we will see 110 in the Summer but I have as of yet, not had to shovel sunshine. I do miss flying off of floats and skis and my old clubs annual "Freeze In" every Jan 1.
 
You got me there, you never have to shovel the sunshine. LOL I have to take vitamin D here because you don't see the sun for 20 days out of the month, good times, it is awesome JK, I am totally kidding. If it is 20° out and sun I grab my gloves with fingers cut out so I can still feel the sticks and pray I don't crash onto some half frozen pond and screaming "don't go in the water, don't go in the water!" and leaning as if that is going to help. You will never have to worry that you are going to drown your plane.

I just looked it up, the record lowest temperature where I live was 13 degrees (F):ROFLMAO:
 
Shoot, that is almost shorts weather in central Indiana if the sun is out. We are a hardy people, but we melt when it is hot and humid, Now my friends in Minnesota, anything above 0° they only wear a wind breaker. I was in Minnesota in January visiting and it was -24° actual. That sucked !
 
Dang it's cold for you guys. The last time it was cold enough to snow in my area was probably like the 80's. 30-40 degrees is still more than cold enough for me though. Luckily it's starting to warm up a bit and I don't have to freeze during classes.
