Particularly fetching, it is, with the special red overspray in the engine bay.
I do like the little caps on the rear wheels.....that are missing on the fronts.....

One of those, chip the paint too hard and the wing will hit your toes.

Hey, Bryan.....you do know there are more airplanes in the ocean than there are submarines in the sky, right?

ET(SS), USS SeaHorse, SSN 669.

Ah.....when was the last time an aircraft snuck into a Soviet harbour....patched into an underwater phone line with a recording device....came back later and retrieved it......

Usually, when an aircraft gets that quiet, it's when the engines have quit and it's a short time from a hard landing...

Used to pull that on USAF types on the Russkie Foxtrot I was in charge of "upgrading" here in Seattle.

We would wait for them to figure it out.......

Back "on topic", though........why has the owner flared out the rear fenders so radically?

(Oh, I DO appreciate older aircraft.....I even swapped out a split jug on the port engine of a DC-3 in the plains of Colombia once.......)

I think they just put a thick coat of filler over everything. Notice the gap between the sill and wing has been filled in too. I would guess it is because of advanced metal degradation, such as you Navy folks would find after long exposure to salt water.... I think they are hoping the pretty red paint attracts someone who don't know so much. That's probably why the exterior pictures are so small and there aren't any body closeups.

I dunno.....3" thick CRES, not a whole lot of corrosion issues.....unlike the main spar corrosion on them aluminium flying machines that makes them non-flying museum pieces.

You know, it might be interesting to do one of these cars up like a 'TOONS' car, all puffy. A bugeye that looked like all the little kids at the mall.....
