I don't recall whether you intend Shorty to be Olive Drab or Bronze Green. The purple may need a white outline or black. Its okay on that bright green in your prototype but I wonder about the darker greens. I like the Theo.. outline/logo.

 Hi Tony,

If it was my choice, I would just go with the tac plates of 1 topographical Survey  Squadron  and leave it at that. I do understand where your coming from but sometimes more can distract from original.

I don't know what the Tac Plate is but I'll find out for you and let you know.

Cheers,

Mick

I agree with Mick Tony,

Keep it original, you can't go wrong.

Of course, it's your car, whatever you think.


Cheers,

Mike.
