I like column 1.
Panel layout looks nice. Honestly, I think the color scheme is going to come down to personal preference. I like black/dark colors on the outside to outline the kite. (You should see my Revs where I picked the colors - they all have black/dark outlines.)
Oh yea, is that line going through the color wingtip panels going to be pinstriped too? I don't think it should.
Although I normally would agree with 'Thief' on the accent color being on the wing tips ....I'm leaning towards column #1 as well for some reason it just ties together more for me. Also, the large bold accent color panel right after the wing tip sort of does the similar effect of making the wings stand out for me anyway. The 'jury' is not out yet on that.
As for flipping the center colors...
I'm not in agreement at all on that one
...but I did try the suggestion out! I appreciate the input but it just doesn't do it for me! Everyone has different tastes in what looks good and what doesn't.
P.S. After looking at Thief's suggestion a little more ...I may have changed my mind! ....or maybe I'm just losing my mind thinking too much about this ....
