I just got a text & call from Chris at AV8 Paintworks. Yep, it’s 1:30 AM and he’s working. He’s just not happy with the design of the black swath on the fuselage. If you look carefully, you’ll see two blue strips on the vertical stabilizer and on the fuselage. He wants to extend the fuselage black stripe to the blue line, and add black onto the bottom of the vertical stabilizer. He really thinks that this will make the lines sweep and flow much more artistically. I told him to go ahead!

crude photo manipulation to fill in the black areas
