Beautiful Oliver! What did you make the silver reservior thingies out of, or are they just painted?

 

Cheers,

I used styrene rods. they were primed black , given a  glossy coat and painted with silver metalizer then rubbed with a cotton ball to give it shine.

Definitely like the gray.  The two tone brown though would look good on that Frelon....

Nice line-work.

 

This is what I see:

2 tone grey matches almost everything in one manner or another. The brown one is a complete contrast, moving into the cool-warm contrast between ground and figure (helicopter) arena.  The third falls into the light-dark contrast category.

The 2 tone grey body is a neutral solution, will be visually absorbed by the base as they are similar colors, and will fall away, the purpose of camouflage,

This is a visually neutral solution between the figure and ground.

I like the cool/warm 2-tone.  It's a more dynamic solution against what is already there than the other 2.

 

Everything else fairly matches the base and therefore is one with the base (white, yellow, and grey) and will recede compared to the 2 tone brown, which will stand out and become a center of interest.

 

Anyway, for what it's worth, this is my take.  Best of luck with your decision.

Sincerely,

Mark
