    I think orange and teal look nice; now switch them around so that the stripe is orange and see how that looks. I've always liked blue and orange aircraft.

    Yes, paint the plane blue so it matches the sky.

    I sure can do that for you. It will take a day or so, just keep watching and I will post as soon as I get those pics for you.

    I have always like the Purple and Yellow. I have built a few RC Bi-Planes using these colors. I thought they always looked good together. Purple and Gold work too.

    Same here.... Metallic plum and bright lemon yellow. Another combo I like is orange and green (shades to match an orange tree's fruit and leaves); separate the colors with a bold white pinstripe (or wider, depending on the pattern).

    Another striking combo is orange separated by a white with a black pinstripe (look at the Home Depot logo for a sample).
