Default L-1011 air canada refresh

I acquired this Air Canada L-1011-500 recently and after much deliberation decided to do a sand and refinish. It had experienced too many scrapes dents chips etc and a poor engine re attach. Glad I did and I also gave it some personality with a registration and fin number. It had neither in the previous scheme.

Very nice indeed! Is it a Pacmin or Westway?
