If anyone is interested in a very nice, highly detailed RV-8 cutaway drawing, Tom Johnson will produce one, once he has 300 orders. You can see examples of his work here and here. Details of the various sizes and prices (as written by Tom here):

So here’s the clincher: To commit to this project, will require:

  1. Cold start priming in the form of at least 300 orders—with a 50% retainer up front.

  2. I will bill the retainer through PayPal once the required number of orders is reached.

  3. Once all retainers have been received, I will schedule in the project, which will take approximately 8 weeks to complete.

If the retainer is met by February 14, the project could be done by Sun & Fun ‘09.

Available prints and pricing:

18” X 24” on archival paper……………………………………… …$45.00 +S/H**

24” X 36” on archival paper……………………………………… …$65.00 +S/H**

Fine-art 24” X 36” limited edition of 100 giclee prints……….$200.00 + S/H*

Custom prints: an exclusive cutaway of your personal aircraft with your paint scheme and specific details. By quote only, the price will be determined by the complexity of paint scheme and level of detail desired. A 50% deposit will be required on these special projects to secure a position in the queue. They will be scheduled in the order received after completion of the original model 8. Custom cutaways generally range between $500 - $1500. I have done some of these works for Pitts Model 12 customers and they have been extremely pleased with the final result.

*a giclee is digital print that is the highest quality reproduction available. These are fine-art prints produced on museum quality acid-free paper using non-fading special inks. When framed properly, these prints have non-fading life expectancy of 100 years. These must be printed one at a time at ultra-high resolution for maximum detail. They take about 1 hour each to print and are dazzling.

**Shipping and handling includes actual shipping charge and packing tube. Within the US this is $15.00. Overseas rates vary. (Inquire for rates)

I look forward to starting this exciting project.
