I have decided on my engine colour. And it has changed over time. Especially after discussions with Jacquie, Jamie and Jeff from Lycoming Thunderbolt.
The final result is the colour in image 2 (Thunderbolt Grey), setup like image 1, with the lower cylinders like image 3 (the blue engine).
I came to this conclusion as I have not got a real understanding of the outside colurs in detail and if I chose a different colour for the engine then it could look a bit odd. So a contrasting arrangement will probably look significantly better.
It is now going into build which should take approximately 2 weeks give or take, then it is on the boat and on it's way..... so exciting.... :-)
I want to say that Jeff Schans from Thunderbolt engines has been ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.......!!!

I can't say enough about his help and care to ensure I get the engine that I am after.
Thanks Jeff, I really appreciate it.
BTW = 8 hours is all the time taken on working it out....Aaarrrhhhh!!!!
