I'm looking for something different, colorful, easy to see and different. Did I say different - Have seen some racing and civilian schemes, but I would like to keep it a warbird. Does not have to be a PR XVII scheme per se, but would prefer glass nose schemes.

All due respect, that RAF in the museum looks like a large Trainer with the letters and numbers reversed. Yuck...

I would stick with the German scheme. My 0.02 cents worth.

Pitt I like the German one the BEST also not going to be any of those at the field.

I was just giving him some to look at There's an american version blue (top),black(bottom) w/ red tail also. stars and bars on the side.

And there's the one I'm doing dark sea grey(top) light sea green(bottom) and Yellow spinners, and the dark sea grey has some leftover camo scheme under the grey.

Hey Carlos - whats up? Just saw your other post - yeah it looks like trainer and it is real ugly, but for some reason I like it. :-)

Bruce - you are to blame for me getting off my behind and finally repainting, putting in a cockpit, and generally finishing my mossie.

OH here we go your going to blame me because you are going to change your mossie to look the way you want it to look?
well if you go w/ either one of those they both have YELLOW and you'll be able to see it much better!! what is up w/ the Germans and YELLOW anyway I have always wondered about that? it is on there flag but don't know if that's why they used it on war birds, it's not very good camo!
Rob I can't wait to see what you come up with, you say your doing the cockpit also?

Bruce - not planning to do a full cockpit (but you know how that goes) just drop the floor and add seat backs, partial panel, 1/2 busts and radio gear.

Carlos - I need something bright, you know I'm getting older and the eyesight isn't getting any better
