It should be coming soon. I got to build the model for the box art. I'm also getting ready with ACS coamings and ECS pipes, since the Revell kit doesn't have them. I'm toying with the idea of dropped flaps as well, but I need to see what's involved.

Yes. And Yes!! I made myself half nuts dropping flaps on the Testors sedan. Don't laugh, it was paid for!

PS. Can't wait to see the box art.

That VX 23 scheme was the outcome of a squadron contest the CO ran a few years back.  

 

Interesting.  I wonder what the winning scheme looked like ???

I concur 100%. Maybe it's the shade of blue that makes me cringe!

I don't have a problem with the shade of blue; the black/yellow trim on the fins and the red/white pattern on the spine are just don't work IMO.  There's just too much going on in that scheme, it's too busy. 

 

The idea was to incorporate the Maryland state flag into the scheme.  I don't think the MD state flag colors work with the blue.
