Grey paint jobs.
« on: January 28, 2019, 10:55:09 am »
I kind of like these flat grey paint jobs the Colombian Air Force put on their TC's. I always wanted a slightly grey metallic paint job on mine should I ever repaint it, but this flat tone is really clean and cool, too.

Slumming it in the turboprop world - so you don't have to.

You mean like the grey they are putting on Porches and other cars.  I have seen ford f150s in a grey that I used to not like but I now like it.

It would be a unusual move to paint a plane like that.

Exacly like those Porsche flat grays. Took a little while, but now they look pretty cool.

Wait a second.  I like my paint job, too...  Not too shabby for a 1964 model.  ;-)

The shiny gray isn't too bad, in my opinion (I still prefer white). The flat, military gray is fine for what it is-- a functional military paint job-- but nothing I'd want on an airplane I own.

Just my opinion, though.

I agree with you Don.  I have enough time flying grey or black airplanes.  Color is a wonderful thing!

Just curious how many commanders have the 5 blade prop out there.

Is the shiny gray one a military airplane, or just someone's personal airplane?

Just a guess but it is an "N" registry so most likely personal or corporate
