LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
I built a home built, experimental airplane, the Glasair Sportsman 2+2. It currently is unpainted, in its 'natural state' of a white fiberglass body, and aluminum wings. It is a high wing, 4 place airplane, which can be switched from the tricycle gear, to the tail dragger, or to a float plane configuration. Overall, it is a fun plane to fly, and has a wide rage of capabilities for the private pilot.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
I would like a paint scheme that gives the feeling of being modern, elegant, or efficient. I am not looking for a white plane with a stripe (like most planes). I am not looking for a 'statement' plane--such as an all orange plane, or one that someone would say 'oh, that's interesting.'
I am not constrained by an all white plane. The factory plane is mostly red, including the wings and fuselage (body).
I do like the richer colors of the BMW cars: the dark rich red, the dark blue, or the silver. A combination of these could be good.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Mostly me. This is my plane that I love to fly, and the paint will make it look even more professional than it already is. When I roll into an airport, I already get positive comments on the airplane, its performance, and its lines. I am looking for the colors and design to enhance this professional look.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Please don't limit yourself, but I do like the general flow that goes along with the Boeing Aircraft Dreamliner, the Honda Jet, and some race planes have sleek designs. I am not afraid of stripes, curves, accents, etc.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
I really don't want a Yellow, or a Green plane. I don't want a 'military' design. I don't want a plane that is a 'joke' (e.g. like a vanity plate). I tried out some ideas based upon some racing motorcycle helmet designs, and the ones I tried got way too busy.
