I picked #3 as it is a lot like my 2013 Cirrus which was a remarkably good looking plane.

Wow! BT comes through!! Thanks for all of your input. This has been really difficult. I'm very torn about the military paint scheme also. I'm Active Duty with 22 years of service, so I thought it would be cool. I have to admit, my original preference was as follows:

#2
#8
#1

I just made #3 recently, and I have many other civilian schemes to share with you. I'll post those soon.

Thanks again! This helps tremendously!

You've already done the Cirrus scheme!

Military schemes only look well on tandem seating RV's. I would keep it civilian.

Not all military paint schemes are low vis. Back in the mid to late 20th century they were a bit more visible. The Navy was fond of a sort of putty color, a lot like the light khaki tan on my pants, with bold markings on the tail and sides of the nose. Looked cool as hell, but eventually they decided that "look at me" wasn't what they were after and so everyone in the fleet gets the mil spec air superiority gray. Everyone that is except CAG. He or she still gets to look cool:

Wait. Just saw the argentina scheme. Seeing as how that’s my homeland, it is now my first pick!

Can you make out the N number on the #7 red tail? Working on a similar color scheme for a Mooney and would love to track down some paint codes.
