Yes, have contemplated it.
If you put it on the edges, then the middle's grimey, it'd look really good, and be unique
Yup, good plan.
I can see you'd have quite a few to do though...
If I do go down this route, I'll probably only do it for the points on the high speed lines... just to keep things a little more prototypical... and to save myself the hardship of painting god knows how many points!!!

well, i've been a bit busy with various things, and have still some work to do on it. i'm currently at the 'nearly-all-painted' but needs weathering stage... and the paint i used (despite claiming to be matt!) is a little too glossy... i'm also still waiting on getting in the electrical bits and bobs... have had no luck sourcing some of that really thin wire... and i want to place the order in one big hit, so am waiting until i know more precisely what other electrical stuff i'm going to do. rest assured, photos will appear eventually!
