Yep, basic white, with metallic burgundy and metallic smoke gray seperated by a thin gold line.

Colors will start at leading edge/root, "S" curve to TE at tip, getting wider as they go.

Fuse, same colors start at lower cowl, "S" curve over wing, down under "N" numbers, and back up to rudder.

Or something like that

The paint is all in my wife's ballpark.

Default All done

Not painted yet, but it is done. Got the airworthiness inspection yesterday. Looks like first flight will be Saturday if the weather permits.

Default Fresh out of the paint shop

Just yesterday (Mar. 7, 2011) I brought the airplane home from the paint shop. After 90 hours of flying around with a pink cowl and canopy I am really looking forward to taking it to Sun n' Fun later this month to show off a brand new paint job.

Today was a beautiful day here in South Western Ontario so I decided to fly to a neighboring uncontrolled airport to take the following pictures.

Here it is back home in a heated hangar where it will live from now on.

Your lines look great. Nice transitions & the empennage looks long & slim. Very good.
