Personally I'm a big fan of Tiger Meet paint schemes.

I don't normally do this but I think it is a good cause.
A woman named Julie is a volunteer with one of the two After School Care Programs in
Colorado Springs, CO. The people that volunteer their time to make these programs
work are to be applauded for their efforts to give these would be latch key kids a safe
place to go. They not only supervise but they try to educate and stimulate these young
minds. One of their many programs will be to educate the kids about model building
and hopefully create future builders. I think we all built plastic at one time or another
before taking up die-cast and many people still do both. If you are like most plastic
modelers you probably have quite a few unopened models lying around that you will get
to "SOME DAY". The model teaching begins in February and I think it would be a nice
gesture if excess models were given to this After School Care Program so it will be a
success with a model for each child. I know that Julie's 11 year old daughter Sadie is
very enthused about this. Hopefully in time this will create future die-cast collectors.
If you can help here is a link to their information site. Thanks
