Definitely looks better, Fred. Be careful stepping outside, the "little beggars" may well try to perforate your scone! :thumbsup:

If the Russians had got hold of one I can visualize the main wing being discarded and four wings, two at the front and two at the rear will a rotor stack on each wing.
Twin or quad fins instead of the single vertical tail fin.
Cam doors at the front and rear ends with loading ramps, a possible upper deck for troops to sit.

Underside is blue.  Adding the same amount again of white to the Vallejo RLM 65 has brought it close to what other paint manufacturers sell.

I was thinking of the thing simply being HUGE... Like.. the front of the main section is about the same as a 4-5 story building and it tapers in the back to a two or three story building. The lil gondola on the bottom would be like a typical single story vessel.  Back to the main section; it would have been nice for the artist to include a bunch of stairs and landings behind all that glass and it would have served to drive home the point.

EDIT:  In fact, I just saw a door on the side you can use for scale, sort of, and if you look real close... down in the bottom of the front in the little section you can almost make out a couple of people standing there...  might not be people at all, but might be!  ;D

I think you are right Brad C.  I would have drawn a palm tree inside the conservatory at the bow.

Thanks folks.

That looks fab Womby.  Interior stripes is a nice touch.

...Was that an RW team colour scheme?

Yes.  They are the kit decals and I presume Revell did their homework.  All the pics i've seen from the '68 season show white with signwritten sponsors names etc (some have Cobra Jet in red, some blue) so I assume Ford rolled out all 50 in White.

Finished the decals on the Typhoon today - stencils and the yellow stripes along the leading edges.  I gave up on the stripes as they didn't want to conform at all.
I also started a second colour on the Hun but had to stop and go in and cook Mrs z's tea.

Makes the '66 Mustang I built for my daughter look positively pedestrian, in comparisson.

That's not so pedestrian, it looks terrific. And Fred's Mussie was built as a racer anyway, your daughter's is a street machine.  :thumbsup:
