Default Northwest DC-10-40 possibilities

Seeing all of the JAL DC-10-40's coming out from Aviation 200 has me excited for a possible (hopefully "likely") Northwest release. Which livery would you want most? For me the choice is obvious, my first flight(that I remember) was on a Northwest Orient -40 in 1984, N151US.

Here she is only six months old, I like the "DC-10" and "McDonnell-Douglas" logos on the forward fuselage under the blue stripe:

Other options:

I normally like the Thermometer version better but the Bowling Shoe looks best on the DC-10...

Red/gray, as it was never done in 1/400. (I'm still ticked that DW, with their excellent -40 mold, made red/gray on a -30!!!)

I like the "series 40" call out on the DC-10 logo here:

Awesome takeoff:

I can't find a picture of it but I always liked that Dragon or Jet-X 1/400 release with the DC-10 in red right next to the Northwest Orient titles. But in the end I just want a standard issue Northwest Orient DC-10-40.

But wait, I just thought, are they able to polish the baremetal or do something better than silver paint?!
