Default Picking a Paint Job

I'm ordering my engine and prop next month, which got me to thinking about the inevitable paint job that's not far away. I starting looking at my photos of RV's from various airshows and events over the past years. I didn't realize I had so many. So I put them in a video. Maybe you can spot one you like.

I did the exact thing, using car colors I liked. My plane is the paint shop now getting painted Corvette Velocity Yellow , White, and BMW Interlagos Blue.... I felt safer picking car colors I have seen and liked in real life, rather than colors that I thought I would like from a book.

Just for grins... Maybe I should support the companies that made my build possible.

Trouble is Smitty, that your collection of favourite photos cover the whole spectrum of options. Do you prefer colourful stripes, or military markings?

Sure hope not. I want to be able to see you in time to avoid colliding with you.
