    I have some -- all the way back to "Bilbo", but I don't think they're handy. I'll have a quick look around, but may not get to it before I head South in a couple of weeks.

    Hey Tom,
    WOW! A blast form the past! Aero Magic went through a lot of "color" changes. While it was Bilbo, it was cubish yellow and blue. Then as team member Paul Mitchell, being the artist he was/is, wanted to dress it up. So Bilbo went through it's phase of really cool colors, of carmel, silver, and and, and then fades from one to another. It was cool!, but tough to work on...Enter Don Sanford of "Aero Mag" the engine builder, along with the guru Jack Jonno Wells. So Don got a letter addressed to his Mag shop in care of Aero Magic. Don suggested we give Bilbo the Aero Magic name. And so it was. We changed everything to white with black trim. That was seen and was easier to deal with for mods. Simple white, touch ups. And there was a lot of mods during those Aero Magic days. So for Neal and any others, what phase are you seeking? And might have some around, but Neal is the MAN!
