I'm still planning for Herbie's repaint sometime before next spring and it would be really great if you could let me have thoughts on these colour schemes. I tried this a couple of years back with some retouched photos and got some good feedback, but my ideas have moved on since then. I'd appreciate any thoughts on the variants above. You'll need to click on the picture to see it large enough.
Lets number them from the top. The top one No1 is more or less how Herbie looks today.
Nos 2 and 3 are similar except for the shade of red and the colour of the side doors
Nos 4 and 5 are variants on green
and No 6 is a very dark grey with red trim top and bottom as well as the cream coach lines.
Doing these drawings didn't take all that long. I measured up the boat in about ten minutes with a tape measure and then used a package called smartdraw that I got on a free magazine cover cd some years back. Once you get the outline in, pouring in colours takes no time using MS Paint. Nothing fancy but it works!
