New 90mm design, need your input for color scheme

Hi Guys,
I've come up with a new 90mm EDF design that's now at the point of covering and I'd appreciate your choosing the paint scheme you'd think looks better from the two I've developed. I've tried this with the local guys I fly with and thought I'd see how their preference compares with yours.
The all-wood model is based on the new Monnett "Sub-Sonex" JSX-2 personal jet which was seen at both Oskkosh and Sun 'n Fun EAA gatherings. The model spans 62" which is 1/3.5 scale of the full size of which 6 kits have been delivered to homebuilders. I thought it would make a great, easy-to-build EDF model for the larger fan units on 6 to 8 cells. It is equipped with flaps and retracts.
Once you guys decide on the scheme, I should be about two weeks away from test flights.
Thanks for your input, it's greatly appreciated.

Rich,
Looks good, I like the red air force livery

BTW what has happened to the S-3 I was really looking forward to building that.

Nice Rich, is a nice shape for many color schemes to work but to add my voice to the previous comment -- where is the S-3 ? You develop some neat designs and sort of tease us with promises of plans/kit releases !!

Have built a few of your old designs so I know they build and fly very well, are you out of the "get to market" business?

Very nice!
Coincidentally, I drew up some CAD for one a few months back, but for 70mm EDF and foam construction. Still haven't had a chance to put it together... might just have to build your version instead.

I say go for the Silver/Red scheme for the prototype.

Guys,
Thanks for commenting.....
Cooler and Turbo......you share the views of the majority of my flying buddies so it looks like its going to be gray and red/orange
NH and Killi........sorry, didn't mean to be a "tease" with the Viking but, like a lot of us, I get teased myself with new projects and sometimes get sidetracked. Both sizes of the S-3 are still flying and in good shape but more frequently occupy their spaces hung up in my workshop. I never really concluded my discussions for publishing the construction article with the magazine; on my "to do" list. Again, sorry!
Lt........I considered the yellow of the prototype but there wasn't enough trim color to make it interesting to me. Maybe I should make up something that looks good and send it to Monnett; maybe they would use the trim scheme on their prototype! Wouldn't that be novel, full scale guys copying the model!!
Again guys, thanks!

Rich

Rich,
I like the orange, gray, and black scheme, or something like these. I think the NASA scheme would look nice.

Well they are my thoughts.

Very pretty model and it just looks like it wants to fly. Let's hope you don't get "teased" by another new model and get sidetracked from releasing this one ---plans/short kit or full kit will be fine thank you very much.

Can you give us details of the fire in this one ?

Thanks.
