Design your own Paint Scheme - Q & A's


Q: Do I need to be a current member or sign up to the 30 membership to design my own paint scheme?
A: No, this is not related to our 30 day membership to the paint scheme library. You don't need to sign up!

Q: How hard is it to design my own paint scheme?
A: It's not difficult but you must have basic computer skills and be willing to put several hours into learning the Mayura Draw software and how to work with our line drawing. You will need to read the Mayura help files and experiment with all the tools in order to achieve your desired results. It's fun but will take several hours or more.

Q: Are there any design limitation using Mayura Draw?
A: Mayura Draw is a basic vector drawing program. It does not compare to the high end drawing packages (Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw costing $300 - $600). The primary limitation we found is it's limited ability to manipulate text. When working with your aircraft registration numbers (N#'s), you are limited to text size, font & color. You will not have to option to dictate the text outline which we found did not allow us to apply common N# styles.

Q: Can I save the paint schemes I design?
A: Yes, you can save your paint schemes directly to your hard drive and open them again at any time.

Q: Will I be able to print my paint schemes in color?
A: Yes, Mayura Draw supports both postscript and non postscript color printers.

Q: Can I use Mayura Draw to open paint schemes I find on the AircraftPaintSchemes.com web site and change the design and or colors?
A: No, not at this time but we are looking into this option.

Q: Do I have to purchase my aircraft line drawing from AircraftPaintSchemes.com?
A: No, if you have advanced skills you can draw your own or acquire your line drawing from some other source. We do not provide any information regarding drawing your own line drawing or how or where to acquire it from another source.

Q: What if I can't find the line drawing for my aircraft within the AircraftPaintScheme.com Line Drawing Library?
A: Let us now by sending us and email and we will do our best to find it and make it available. If you have the hard copy, you can send it to us and we will redraw it and give it back to you free.
