    Not much of a choice in color scheme really, most were in PRU blue or late PRU Blue + medium Sea Grey and I will probably build the 3rd one in the scheme.

    Ok, so again & if you may satisfy my curiosity please or else I am missing something here & I'm not aware Suspect Suspect Suspect what was the reason of applying the same colour to two same birds & contemplating of finishing a 3rd one in the same scheme? What I mean is this.....when I used to build aircraft & I built 2 & 3 same birds together, I finished them all differently Cool Cool Cool

    Ray, Brian, Marco, Noel and Wayne thanks!

    Ray, as I already mentioned both are PRU Blue mkXIX, the only difference are the markings and time, one is from 1945 and the other post 1950. Still contemplating on the 3rd one but it will built as the 'last one' as per Airfix decals (medium sea grey/pru blue). About 3 builds at a time, it was not my intention to build more then one but they are so nice and easy that I build a 2nd one!
