    Thanks guys. Any "green tinge" would be purely unintentional. It's probably the lighting as It was pi$$ing rain outside and I had to take these pics indoors under a weak light. I would have preferred a light grey background but can never find that colour in the craft store.

    well maybe, but I still think there is greenish hue across the dorsal area of the aircraft. I need to get my eyes tested, but it looks terrific. Kinda like metal that's been hot and then cooled slowly......

    Beautiful work Andy! Those white wings and bright roundels really contrast well with the NMF finish!
