Can you post the photo? If I can see the pattern, I might be able to provide colors.

This image does not show any pattern I'm afraid but suggests an 'all over' paint scheme.(click image for full view)

Terry,

I too am looking into this very question for the model I'm doing, so when I hear back from Roy Ellis I'll let you know what he comes up with.
