    Hi Pete,

    Looking good old timer!

    I guess red is the obvious choice, but a bit boring! There's plenty of colour schemes out there, and as long as you avoid the 'Lozenge' pattern I think you'll be O.K. Looking forward to seeing the finished model.

    Regards, Ned.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    A lot of "rat-atat" noises going on between you and your friend I'm guessing?

    Well done Pete!
    I guess boring red isn't so boring after all. It really makes it stand out.

    I thought the black model looked too plain so I added some trim...Pete.
