3 pics check your albums it would be nice to have a current photo of higher quality of the project in progress or original paint scheme as N4133D

Maybe Ray Dorcey will share a picture or two I've been trying to get him to send one for a couple years. Anyone heard from Ray? He's been awful quite. How is his project progressing?

added a third photo

I'm really curious what the a/c look like at the present. Why don't one of you guys slip over to Rays house and take a picture.

I haven't heard or seen anything posted by Ray for a long time his last post was March 12, 2018 is Ray still with us?
