Believe it or not our customers provide us with a lot of different submittals to discuss how their paint scheme should look: from tattoos on their shoulders, water color paintings, 1:1 paintscheme on paper or match the pictures of their dog in his carnival costumes. What we have not received yet is a quilt blanket scheme.
We have a lot of diversity, love to be challenged and always try to "make it happen"!

Think how many airplanes you've seen where your first thought was"YEEEEECH!
What was that guy thinking?"
There is a tendency when repainting airplanes to think in terms of personalization, rather than resale. This is perfectly okay and laudable, if the airplane is going to stay with you a long time.
Beauty is in the eye-of and all that kind of thing. You can never go wrong with a factory paint scheme or something that mimics that style; boring white with predictable stripes. You'd be surprised how many folks don't really want a bright orange Bonanza with purple checkerboard wings. If, however, that's your thing, go for it but do it as well as possible.
Our Master Painter can transpose any picture of your favorite paint scheme on to your airplane even it's from a different model!
Now, think about resale!
Few of us keep the same airplane for a life time, so at some time that paint scheme is going to have to appeal to someone else to make them want to buy it. 'Want to instantly increase the value and salability of your airplane? Put a nicely done paint job on it.
A good paint job is worth its weight in gold in terms of the protection it affords and the quality image it exudes.
