This is going to get painted over the next few weeks.
Its ended up with a few blue ano bits on it which i like, so i'll match the decals to the blue.
The question is...to paint it bright green or bright orange?????

If someone, who is a bit of a whiz with photoshop, fancies doing a mock up for me to help the decision making process that would be great :D :D
