Oh yeah, this too is great.  I think these colors might fall into the WMD* category.  Trying to picture that scheme on a CH-47.....  :wub:

Do you know or can you find out what colors/paints he used for that?  I'm really starting to think about that Chinook.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking of stealing borrowing this color scheme! I looked at the Vallejo color swatches and  OK matches to what's on the screen are Barley Grey for the lighter gray, Medium Sea Grey for the darker gray and Olive Drab for the green.
