I teamed up with Paint Schemers, to create a great paint scheme for my RV-7.
Here’s the first version of the scheme I that I selected. I found the all black wheel fairings rather dull and I choose a chrome spinner.
This resulted in the second version of this design. The next step is to design the Wings and Horizontal stabilizers.
Again the all black Horizontal stabilizers are dull and the pointy ‘arrows’ on the top don’t match the curves on the Wings and Fuselage.
With the Horizontal stabilizers matching the Wings is nicer and I’ve simplified the Wing roots.
This is the final design of the paint scheme (at this point in time).
Because the ULPower 520iSA is lighter than the Lycoming, I had to extend the Engine mount to move the CG more forward. Hence the Cowl also needs to be extended, which results in a slight change in the Cowl paint.
