Well, there are many scheme for this plane, but i prefer to have something visible in air, with more colors as possible or something like that, so it can be easily seen on air. I think the best color sheme is the "Diamondbacks" version, but i found a version that i never saw, the Vc2.

I'm worried just to match the same color of the paint! If i print decals on normal paper it's pretty impossible to find the same grey than the paint.
For example, the decal "marines" need to be colored, because it's pretty impossible to cut every letter. Do you have any suggestion?

You could try white vinyl cut lettering. I used that on my Yf-23 and T5 park jets it works well as long as the parts are not too small

I think different set of graphics could be the right solution!
But you have to wait 'til i paint it. I just glue some pieces!
