    Superjet P-40 Patriot

    I recently purchased a 1993 Superjet 650 from some guy in Wisconsin (which he overpriced the $hit out of it) but that's besides the point. For some reason the ski had this ugly graphic kit on it and a hole in the hood

    This kit was not going to stay on for long so I ended up stripping it off and going for a test run in the local canal.

    I figured I just stick with the white paint and put some more graphics on it as usual until I stumbled upon Turbodriven's Superjet "Rattle Can" project. If you guys haven't seen it check it out he did an awesome job: http://www.pwctoday.com/showthread.php?t=317958&page=3
    As a high school history teacher and a WWII aviation enthusiast, I thought this shark mouth scheme would look great on my ski. Luckily for me, my girlfriend's father worked at an autobody paint shop and hooked me up with a awesome deal for my ski I couldn't pass up.

    This is the final result, white automotive paint along with painted shark mouth decal and USAF badge.

    To top it off I order some BlackTip White Camo Turf to match:

    Looks awesome! Im really diggin the P-40 Scheme. I restore WWII fighters (working on a corsair right now) and have been thinking about doing a navy corsair themed ski. This is getting me motivated....

    A Navy Cosair scheme would look cool on an SJ. Paint it a royal/navy blue with the Star badge on the side!

    Haha I dig the 550 design! My original plan was to paint my old 550 like that. I had to sell it and bought a Superjet because it was too much work.
