Colorful is one parameter - having the colors available in covering another. That was what did it for the British Midlands one for me. No matter what I think I will end up with a white base on mine. If I do the red nose, tail and tips of the US Forrest Service one, or simple civilian trim I don't know yet.
The Baron was also flow as a "T-42A Cochise" in the Army, now with the Airforce Reserve and National Guard. Might be a nicely painted one there for all I know?
oops - that was the 55, not the 58 - but still
