I think we have finished painting the Cheetah now and will move it to the display hangar next week. When the prop arrives we can fit that and it should make a great display item along side the other engines there.
The Cheetah has now been moved from the restoration shop into the main display hangar so have a look for it when you next come in. The crankcase colour will reveal where it is displayed - it does stand out.
I very much doubt it. When I did a search looking for colours that were repeated I couldn't find any. They ranged from all completely black to no paint at all. We figured that a reasonable blue would look okay but that one is a bit intense. Still you will know it when you see it.
Over the last couple of workdays some of the team have been involved in getting one of the Bristol Hercules engines (ex Bristol Freighter) ready for transport To Phil Rowse's workshop. Phil is feeling the need to work on a decent engine again so it was stripped of cowls and extraneous parts and loaded onto the hiab truck today and I gather it will be in Phils workshop before the weekend is out. I am sure that he will make a great job of this as he has with the other engines entrusted to his care.

Seeing your post on your other thread about a jaunt to WLG I thought I'd just be a tease to you and those following this thread and enquire as to whether or not your new toys have arrived while you were away
