Those look really nice Karen, the Islander suits the alternative schemes well too, very plausible. welcome aboard the BTS. family, we are a friendly bunch of mudellers on the group :-\

id, second a request for some Australian schemes, the Islander would suit the early Chinook/Caribou scheme quite well methinks?
