Here is my idea for the Kampfer Kompetition.  I am doing  a test unit Kampfer suit with a back pack including two large fuel tanks, thrusters and perhaps an I-field generator.  I am still working on the details of add on parts.  I have come up with three distinct color schemes and trying to decide between them.   I want to take a que from modern day weapons test  aircraft.  I will be adding the reference marks traditionally associated with these weapons tests.  Here are my color schemes.  Constructive criticism please thanks for looking.

I did this scheme in the style if 1970’s test planes.

Here is a military camo type scheme.

Here are two types of reference dots.

For a test scheme, definitely like the orange and white.  However, the orange and green camo is also quite nice...

Since this is a weapon's test unit, have you considered reversing the 3rd color scheme to mostly orange with a small bit of green. Since this is a test unit, I think that visibility is important.

#2 is a solid color scheme. However... #3 has a certain appeal. It's so ugly that it's pretty--and you're not likely to find many a Kampfer in those colors. If you're looking for votes, I'm casting my ballot for #3!

I like #3 as well, very distinct.  More like a military test unit with the camo.
