This is Col. Bob Thacker's Aeromacchi MB.339A. Col. Thacker started with a kit originally designed for a pulse-jet and converted it for ducted-fan. He chose the paint scheme from the Italian airshow team, the Freece Tricolori. Col. Thacker sprayed the paint using Top Flite's LusterKote and after seeing fellow JMRC member Dan Savage's A-4 Skyhawk, asked Dan to create the markings for the MB.339. Dan used a combination of Stitka vinyl lettering and custom decals which he created in Adobe's Illustrator.
