I like the technique for representing a fresh oil leak, but

Response to Skyraider Oil Stain Experiment

IMO, freshly draining oil (yes, radials DO leak that much!wink.gif) would not likely run that far aft on the belly, but would find a lateral panel seam and drop to the ground closer to mid chord-ish. After takeoff on a subsequent flight, that oil would become spread over the belly adding to the overall "grunginess" so prevalent there.

Based on personal observations of SPADs in a prior life, I would "grunge up" the belly some more, and add some brown staining to the drop tank from previous shutdowns... (there are many pics online)

Overall a convincing effect and a beautiful model!

After decades of study, it has become obvious that Murphy was an optimist...
