    Doc I normally do scale inspired schemes, and nearly all of my airplanes are red and white with blue on the bottom as I can see those colors. But I had these two rolls and some scraps of this orange laying around from my big Harley Sukhoi Project a couple years ago so I thought I would use them. I haven't striped it yet, I could also Cheetah spot it! :)

    The Bell X1 was solid orange with just stars and bars on it though.... that might look good too? :)

    Then I could take this to warbird events! LOL

    Great thread and build. Don't know how I missed it up until this point but nothing wrong with a relaxing full build thread read and a cup of coffee on a quiet morning.
