Ya it's just going to be a 'paints kit different' kind of whif. It should still look pretty cool tho  :thumbsup:

I would have thought it was obvious considering the tools and tins of paint next to it.  :rolleyes:

Got the first coat of green on today, whilst watching 'Sleepy Hollow' that old Johnny Depp film. Kinda cheesy but not bad. the film, not the A400  :thumbsup:

Gotta be 1/144, the 1/72 one is GINORMOUS!  :o
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! :)

I have 2 of the 1/72 kits, probably both destined to be Whifs, 1/144 are too small for me  ;D

Working on a 1/72 version now and SWMBO is not happy to share half the dinning room table with it....  ;D

RCAF or RAF. Spec Ops type. Might go the RAF route, things like this just look better in those roundels..... :blink:

On the fence re: operator. Might just buck my trend and go RAF, I like the roundels better  :thumbsup:

Better than the maple leaf??? Impossible (the Canadian one is the most beautiful roundel in the World - with the Kangaroo one of Australia maybe)
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]

Captain Canada

This is true Tophe, but somehow it just doesn't look right on certain aircraft. I haven't tried them on this one yet....just speaking from experience.
