ok nearly finished just a few guns etc, to put on 
the shaded areas are were repairs have taken place on the fabric of the aircraft due to dammage

Bob the bomber.  Very good.
I like the way you've done the rigging by wrapping it round the struts.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Like it very much, the shaded areas are a good trick to make the overall uniform aircraft look more interesting.

Well done, go for it!  :thumbsup:

That's just amazing, and HUGE too!  :thumbsup: :bow:

I'm seriously impressed.
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! :)

Nice! :thumbsup:

Don't know if it's due to better lighting (sunlight) or if you repainted but the colour looks better. too.
