Got 1946 Ercoupe 415C.  Needed painting.  Built trailer to haul it on its own wheels after removing wings.  Towed it to my farm.  Stayed in barn for nearly two years while I hand painted and sprayed cartoon camouflage on it...even painted bullet holes on canopy and over dents.  It sparkled when done.  Built fake missiles, bombs, and even Vulcan style gatling guns to hang on it with recordings of WWII aerial combat in the cockpit.  It became the Combat Coupe.  Airshow visitors loved it and Fixed Base Operator on 4th of July asked if they could use it as center piece for big dinner in large hanger at Independence State Airport in Oregon.  Sure, sez I...but left me without a plane and lots of flying going on.  Sob. Whimper.  Got cardboard, wrote sign, mussed myself up...sat down in front of base building at airport and held it up looking woeful.  Got four different airplane rides that afternoon.  Long live the Combat Coupe!
