Thanks for the comments.
The plane, according to my literature is based on an actual colour scheme from 115 Sqn, who were based at Patricia Bay Air Force Base , BC from August, 1943 to March, 1944. The aircraft is pictured in an artists impression form in journals I have researched from the Royal Aeronautical Society Library in London.
The weblink to the history of the base I found is at http://www.bcam.net/index.htm
The reason for the colour scheme, apart from looking quite nice is that it can be seen easily from the ground whilst in flight. I have a BC Hurricane which disappears into a black dot in the Lincolnshire fenland murky skies and this has often caused me panic and nightmares over which way it is pointing! Also, I wanted this type of scheme as it is different.
I ran the engines up on Sunday night and they seem OK. Might try for a first flight sometime in Mid March, depending on schedule.
