Well after a freezing cold wait we got what we came for. What a great paint job!

Hi Tom, glad you got this beauty. I think it is easily the best special scheme I've seen in many a year. Thanks for sharing it with us. It was worth the wait in the cold!

Great to see the community getting behind this effort. It must be pretty disheartening when your hard work gets rubbished on enthusiast forums as is the case with some designs.

Stunning pictures of a superb scheme Tom. Easily the best tail/spine for a long time (if not ever).

Number three is the pick of the set.

A design that recalls the best of the 75th anniversary schemes from the early 1990s
