    So how about a bit of three blade porn?

    Since we are on a Rare Bear theme, I'll reach back into the archives for this one from 2015. Nope, no 3 blade, but it was the last time the Bear raced.

    Couldn't resist taking a pass at this in Photoshop, hope that's okay Neal.

    I love the brute force look of the three-blader, but I also love the look 2013-onward colour scheme in all its variations. Thank you Will for those pics!

    With all due respect I disagree. I liked the intakes in the wing roots and the cowl symmetry all the way around, I also think the white with gold stripes and purple accents suited the airplane perfectly. It didn't need to be flashy and that understated simple paint was IMHO "perfect". The whole package was very sleek and about as "un-brutish" as you could make that airplane look at that time. I also think the intake on the top of the cowl is ugly, but I also don't recall ever signing a check for anything Bearcat related.
    Edit: If you are able to find an older picture when the stripes started on the cowl to match the stripes on the fuselage when the airplane was at high power and you looked closely you might notice those stripes were not aligned by a fairly large margin. That's why the cowl was mounted to the engine and had a slip ring seal around the firewall, and why some might appreciate my preference for the wing root setup.

    Has BCIV abadoned us once again? He said he was taking time to ensure he got his recollections verified before he added more content but he's been very quiet, maybe I'll call him.

    I've been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, yes I have seen that before.

    I've been reading the comments but don't want to add not thought out answers. Neal's picture in the other thread especially on the oil cooler outlets added quite a bit of thoughts.

    Your comments on the cowling misalignment are thought provoking as well.
