What's the aircraft's mission? Needs bright colors, though - I could see an overall medium blue livery (lighter than Blue Angels) with some yellow and a bit white trim on the wings? Large yellow numbers, too.

I'd look at either the NASA scheme (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NASA_OV-10_Bronco.jpg) or the one for a (most likely fictional) "Patrol and Aid Mission Aircraft" once sold by Hawk (https://boxartden.com/gallery/index.php/Boxart-Collection/HAWK/CIVILIAN-AIRCRAFT/PROPELLER/Hawk-OV-10-Bronco-Plated).

Gerry Anderson almost never went for drab if bright, attention-grabbing colours could do the job.

Mind you, he wasn't averse to slapping on dirt, grime & weathering by the bucket load.
