Great photo, I always thought the SD60Ms looked sharp in that scheme.

I would agree. I thought UP's scheme was the best at hiding the awkwardness of a 3-window set-up. Personally I've always wondered what the designer was smoking the day he put that down on the drawing board. It was certainly swept under the carpet fast enough when the following, 2-window version of that model 'hit the rails'...
