Hi-res 3-view of a Cessna 172

Post by Chris M » Thu Jul 14, 2016 7:56 am

Our 172 is due for new paint and we're on standby with the paint shop, so need to get a paint scheme decided. I've been using a few views I found online, but they're mainly scans from the POH and not very good quality. Does anyone have a good, high-res line drawing of a 172 that I can use to draw paint schemes on?

There's only one paint scheme an aircraft should ever have if it were up to me:

That's a 172? Not to sound harsh, but I'm looking for something a little more realistic.

And yes, done a fair amount of Google-ing and even registered with some online blueprint websites, but to download a vector image is 20 Euro. And the preview makes it hard to judge the quality, so hard to tell if I'm just wasting money.

Try searching google for the C172 POH in .pdf format

From there you can use the 3-view drawing that they have in there. If its a true PDF and not a scan then it should be vectored.
