This is a nice scheme as well, I just see it a lot and wanted something a little
different. Gordon Whitehead published his in these colors and I thought it
looked very nice. It does tend to want the anti-spin strakes though as they
followed soon after the camo and I really can't stand them. Might still do one
someday without the strakes. Some of the civilian schemes are nice as well. I
think I am going to paint markings after all, for a better match. I will be
doing more pictures of the prototype this weekend.

Thanks for all your input.
