I agree Andrew - the airplane just looks right from every angle. Mostly white is pretty much the only way I'd go living in Florida. Dark on the bottom also helps visibility from the ground as someone noted. But I just like the look. The paint shop had a 310 with almost identical scheme in their shop when I visited and I copied the colors from it. Another RV-14A owner has a very similar scheme that I had seen and admired as well.

Default Nice looking RV!

My -9A has a very similar scheme, although it's not nearly as shiny and clean.

You were wise not to get the stripes/scheme duplicated on the wheel pants. Solid white looks great and is much easier to deal with if there's any damage.

Thank you - precisely the reason I stayed with plain white - in case of future damage. I used a couple of stainless steel washers to make protective rings on the nose wheel pants to help prevent tow bar damage as well.

Great looking airplane with a paint scheme that really suits it. Congratulations!

It is very nice. What is the exact color and paint type?
