Default RE: 1/4 Scale F4U-1A Don Smith Plans Build

I had a good day today and for once everything went easy. I got as far as I could in 4 hours building the engine. Heres what I've got done so far. It should really look good when it's all painted up. They even sent a decal like the real engines with a serial number on it. Sorry it's blurred but my camera isn't the greatest. I'm going to use an airbrush to give it an aged look on the cylinders and crank. I'm not sure on the colors yet. Any suggestions for a F4U-7 engine.
