Attached are simple 3-view schematics of the STOL CH 701, 750 and 801. These are useful in designing a paint scheme... Post your sample paint schemes and we'll vote on them!

do you have a schematic for the 601UL or 601HD, i need to work out my paint and transfer scheme, thanks
The links don't seem to work

Hi Sebastien:

Like you I always preferred a simple one colour paint scheme.   Brian

What program do people use with these schematics to create the great looking renderings?



Tom, Were you able to open these PDF's? I open pdf all the time but for some reason these won't open.
They open for me...I don't know what to do next.

Step 1 ~ Print out about 30 or 50 ( E-mail it to your local corner copy shop for printing to save $ ).

Step 2 ~ Get multi colored Sharpies (Or equivelent) ,in as many different colors as you can.A Protractor and a ruler.

Step 3 ~ Sit down with that 'Artistic' Guy you Know.. The guy at work, the guy that did the painting of your Boss's Pet Iguana to Kiss ass.. Or the guy you always hang out with That has been The Coen Brothers Story-Board Artist on Every one of their movies Since ' Blood Simple' and is In the movie 'FARGO' , Credited as the 'Prince' sign laid Sideways, But it really your friend,,   That Guy .. Or your Artistic Niece..  One of those people.

Step 4 ~ Bring Beer.         um ... if your Niece is 21 or older. <---  (afterthought)

Step 5 ~ Talk to the Artist about what you like, while they Create, for you, a 'Donatello S-T-O-L-ello' !

Step 6 ~ Take the one(s) you like to a paint Shop. Get estimate of cost.

Yes, I can understand the colored pencil concept.  What I wonder is how do people create the schematics like these.

YEA  my method , posted here was to Circumvent the need to know PHOTOSHOP , Adobe In Design, or any Software from Adobe Creative Suite !!    BUT ... once you have the desing concept down on paper,,   If you Know Photoshop at all ..  IT's Remarkably E-Z to produce PDF  (Portable Document Format)  files of the Designs  BUT  you'll need a little training in Photoshop  ( my Brother is a fairly Famous Graphic Artist and taught me PhotoShop a long time ago.... ) Ther are alot of classes available for Photoshop and Adobe CS at Local Community Colleges..   Check it out  and I'm56  I love using Photoshop..  

mmmm   Layers !!!!

sorry  Typo ~ ' BUT ... once you have the design concept'
