Sweet! Gotta love a SLUFF! I just finished a couple shelf queens myself; it sure does feel great!

The main colors are on. Never realized how different the demarcation line on the fuselage was between aircraft

They do look good! Very unusual that the white to gray demarcation is so different between the two. The middle of the intake is what is usually seen on the old full color scheme. What squadron markings will these two be in?
