    Default Airplane paint scheme program

    Hi All,

    I am looking for a program or app that has airplane silhouettes, top and side views that will allow me to experiment with different paint schemes.

    Any suggestions?

    I've got a side view silhouette that I could scan and send to you. Printed a few of them and started sketching. Old school.

    Piper actually had very good graphic designers making up the paint schemes on these airplanes. Not to say that others canít make nice designs, but then again, Iíve seen some pretty ugly ones as well!

    I've been trying for a while to figure out how I'm going to paint the 20 I'm doing by just looking at other planes, pictures etc. and finally decided by looking at Horizon Hobbies web site and found my plan, yellow and silver and I'm going to call it Carbon Stub.

    You might Google..... piper pacer 3 view ...... pick one, down load it and use it to old school it like J Ryd suggested or save it as a .jpg or .pdf and open/import it in most any program where you can draw on top of it
