Gorgeous graphic. Is that a painting or some kind of acrylic peel and stick thing?

Co-Joe- It is all painted on, airbrushed the northern lights. Dan and Jeannie did a great job building it over the past 11 years.

Thanks for the comments, everyone (for those who don't know, I'm the guy who built the plane). I was fortunate enough to have a talented artist friend who was also interested in aviation, so the aurorae (and maple leaf on the wings - hard to see in the photo) are all painted on by hand. We're definitely happy with how it turned out!

Neat, how's it look from 100 feet?
