Which Pup scheme do you like the best?

Ok, I'll be starting work on a little Sopwith Pup some time soon, and I'm kind of stumped as to my colour scheme. Narrowed it down to 4 main candidates, so I thought I'd put it to the crowd:

First up, looking pretty in olive green, is the typical Pup scheme. The one we all know and love:

Next, sporting a few Australian mods, is a close to typical Pup scheme:

In a nice white training outfit is this Australian Pup:

And last but not least, B2192 sporting an eye-catching black-and-white striped number:

Verdicts? Opinions? Lemme have em!

For you Trizza it just has to be the standard with just a touch of an Australian link to it. I don't like the zebra at all, but that's personal taste.

Piccies when she's done please

The way I read the choices you have already decicded.

Is the "slick white one" a kit or scratch?

Oh? I was just calling it "slick" thats all. Thats how Martin Hunter (Dreamer) described it.
I haven't decided yet, no, but I'm leaning more towards Brian's suggestion.

Its plans built. Lets see if the designer pops in to make a comment..

Already voted mate. I'm totally in agreement with Brian on this one. Saw a 1/4 scale striped job at one of the shows, it looked awful. That scheme must make orientation a real pain while you're flying her.
The white one is nice, but that tailwheel sort of destroys the image a bit.

the tail wheel is odd, but a requirement of taxing on concrete or asphalt (tarmac), I'm assuming.

I was afraid you'd spot that. That means you'll just have to add the black band and Kangaroo to your paint scheme. The all geen one doesn't appear to have it.
My word, aren't there a lot of different sized Pups about, 150, 280 and 600. What a popular plane.

I think it is the best WWI model as it seems to work so well in every scale, as long as you can manage the balance point!
