They all look good in close-up.  I like the middle sample most, but of course it's up to your friend.

Hi Karl,


Just catching up on this. I got this kit from Brett just before Turkey Day - I haven't even had a chance to crack open the box with all the holiday craziness - but will certainly be following along with your progress.

Karl I like the red to.


Marty will be interesting to see what you do with this kit.

Hey Jerry:

 I'm going with the white as that is what my friend chose as first choice.

Hey guys:

Ok here are a couple of photos. One is from the instructions with peeling white paint. The other is what I did with the model. Tried to copy what Brett did.

That looks a lot more "white" than the sample.  Definitely well weathered!
