[R] Unable to send color palette through plot.Design to method="image"

I have been trying to specify a different color palette to the image method in plot.Design. My model has crossed two rcs() arguments and one two-level gender argument. The goal which appears to have been mostly achieved is to produce separate bivariate plots for men and women

The call to plot does produce a level plot but it appears only with the default color palette despite various efforts to supply a col argument. I even took a crack at hacking the plot.Design function, adding a col=col parameter to be passed in the function call to image(), but failed to get the desired effect:   # else image(xseqn, y, zmat, xlab = xlab, ylab = laby , col = col)

library(Hmisc); library(Design)
lr.fit6 <- lrm(death ~
rcs(BL_CHOLEST.A,c(180,220,280))*rcs(BL_HDL.A,c(40,55,70))*Sex, data = pref900)

# str(pref900[,c("BL_HDL.A","BL_CHOLEST.A","death")]) $'data.frame': 910659 obs. of 3 variables:
$ BL_HDL.A : num 34 35 40 46 39 45 46 34 42 52 ...
$ BL_CHOLEST.A: num 181 184 238 134 180 220 125 256 265 175 ...
$ death : logi FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE ...

plot(lr.fit6, BL_HDL.A=seq(25,125, length=50),BL_CHOLEST.A=seq(100, 350, length=70), Sex="Male", col = rainbow(15), method="image")
