You already know #6 is the logical choice and I am glad we could verify for you..

I was thinking an AF trainer scheme for my RV7- if I ever finish it.

Not keen about the dark(er) camo-like schemes. They look kewl, but I prefer higher visibility for both our sakes.

I like the olive drab because there aren’t many like that.

This is particularly poignant as I was seriously contemplating my V35 in "Air Superiority"/ "Compass Ghost" gray on gray paint scheme. Then I got to thinking why we paint our planes Gray on Gray.

I think I am going to go with a more traditional paint scheme more like the 2012 or 2016 Bonanzas. One reason was potential resale (hopefully never a factor), the second reason as stated above... I like to be seen.

I like #7, but I am biased.

Side note....that military Air Tractor is just bad to the bone looking. In a spooky, CIA clandestine way.

My vote is #9.

Wow lots of nice options. Wonder what a cross between a few would look like. A cross between #7 and #1. Red tail and spinner. An all Olive drab body with a black top. Just to see the visual? I am on board with stuart with olive drab

Then again I am partial to olive drab as that is what I just painted my carbon cub.

Not a fan of military colors on non-Mil aircraft. But that is just one opinion. I actually quite like your Cirrus clone look.

You have some great options to choose from. I like the warbird options on an RV. I think they might increase the resale value on RVs based on the pricing I've seen over the years on VAF and Barnstormers.
