I have seen somewhere on this site a version of the blue and white Williams theme done in muted black and silver with mealflake then smoke.
It looked uberkewl to me.
Sorry can't point you to it. Might ring a bell for someone here though.
Yes I am quite serious.

I have simple tastes and like solid colors. To me the best looking 1150 was the bumblebee adventure with the yellow seat.

Unfortunately, mine is silver...

So is mine. I like both color variations, but prefer the silver.

I like the concept. Just continue the stripes to the bottom edge of the tank.
