Only you can really decide what looks best to you, and since you are building it for someone else, use a paint mule and try different colors and see what looks best to you. To me paint mules are an indespensable tool to have available and I use them all the time. I'm using a couple now to practice painting insignia as opposed to decals. Good luck with your decision.
