RLM 71 on the topside completed today.  How exciting.


What's that in English?  :unsure:

A shade I would describe as "cowpat green".

And now the cowpat green has been joined by estuary mud grey (AKA RLM 02).

It's an intriguing looking machine and one that is ringing a very tiny bell somewhere in my brain ?  :unsure:

Looking good there Fred, the yellow bits really make it.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Glad y'all like it.  Next stage is to mottle the fuselage sides.  The colour scheme I printed out is unclear if the mottling is cowpat green or estuary mud grey.  I think i'll go with the grey.

Thanks guys.  I did consider replacing the fin with that from the A-37 but it seemed like it would require far too much PSR.

Masked it up and mottled the fuselage sides today.
I say mottled.  It's more of a fade.  I couldn't get my airbrush to do a mottle even with the #1 nozzley bits.
Still, it looks OK, it's a whiff anyway and it has shown me not to try and mottle with the airbrush on 1/72 aircraft.  In future I shall revert to a knackered old paint brush.

Decaled.

Decals are from an Academy F-104 G (for Germany) and are out of register.  I had to touch parts of them up with black.
