     Well, for the FSE I have painted (Front to back) my BC black,
yellow, and red:  the CAs are blue, white, and red:  the CL is red
yellow, and red:  the 2 DDs are green, white, and red; and green, red,
and red.   Tri-colors, this means that the entire fleet is made up
of flagships.	(It's a visual joke, you really need to see it.)
     The joke going around the FCT and NAC fleet command is that 
FSE stands for "French Snobbery Everywhere".
The NSL ships are basic black with lighter gray highlights.
The NAC fleet is Dark blue and Black/gray in a large mottle.
The Dutch ships are black/gray with orange trim/panels.
The FCT fleet is light gray base with white highlights.
The Kra'Vak are flat black with gloss black trim, weapons are
    steel and the domes are metallic red, green, and blue.
The ESU ships are steel with red panels and yellow trim.
     Not quite standard, but then my ships are not quite 
standard.  (In particular the Kra'Vak and FCT.)

Bye for now,
John L.
