Default Colour Schemes

OK Guys;
Like most men I have no concept of colour coordination (That's what I have a wife for )

So; to assist with covering an Airplane in a decent pattern - Is there a program out there that has a colour coordination application?

I recall something for kids that coloured in houses and pictures - has anyone thought to have a few airplane pictures that you can add colours to, to see what would work? []

Try using Microsoft Paint.. It comes with every windows computer and, to me, has proved invaluble. Good for getting a rough idea of what you want.

However, I have photoshop now and I gotta say its fantastic. Here's what I'm doing now...

Microsoft Paint... IS on my PC and works well - I'm always learning about this machine.

I'll never be a graphic artist - BUT, I did work out my colours!

Thanks!

MS Paint is pretty slick once you get to playing with it. Forget the .bmp files though and save in .jpg

This was the image off the BUSA site for their Phaeton 90

Zoom in and you can alter pixel by pixel for the "fine" work.

If you can find a line drawing even better.

How would a 1925 U.S. Army P1-B look as a 1927 U.S. Navy F6C-4?

Or (If you have a few hundred dollars burning a hole in your pocket) you can use Photoshop
