I really like how this turned out too!  The color scheme is interesting and very complimentary to this airframe... especially like the blue fuselage bands!

thank you  John! 

 

i am not so sure if this was the actual color scheme, but i liked it  when i saw the eduard profile ..

although that JG300 band gave me a real headache to paint it..

That's looking fantastic, Duke!  The paint/finish/weathering are superb!  My guess about the prop blades is that the wide paddle blades are the same as the Dora... wood with metal reinforcing the leading edge and tip...
