In the "gallery" I posted a picture of my Dad's Flying Tiger's painted RV-8.  He and his friend each built one.  They used rotary engines, which is very unusual.  Check out the different cowling; the air scoop is under the cowling inside of on the sides.  @00 hp in a small package with good performance!!

That is sweet!!  I like how the rotary engine installation required what appears to be a lengthening of the cowling.  Also, I like the spinner!  Makes for an overall improvement to the RV-8's already good looks!
