Title: RAAF B-1BA - Aussie Bone!
Post by: KiwiZac on December 30, 2016, 10:55:08 am
Hi all,
Simple: imagine the RAAF continued with dedicated bombers, culminating in the purchase of four B-1BAs in the mid-1980s.

Woah...they keep getting better ! Love the look of those colours and markings on her. Again, what paints did you use ?

The compound curves of the B-1 just scream SEXY!  :thumbsup:

Very well executed, how did you deal with the lack of clear pieces for the upper cockpit?

Glllorrrrrious!!  She looks fantastic! The camo job is choice.

How cool would it be to see her in formation with a couple Aardvarks.   ;D

Thanks for the kind words folks!

Unfortunately the camo colours didn't come out right in the photos so I'll try and get some in natural light. The paints are taken from Federal Standard callouts converted on a FS-Humbrol-Tamiya-whatever chart I found online: Tamiya XF-27, XF-65 and XF-49 over X-2, followed by all-over Humbrol Gloss Kote for the decals then Matt Cote to finish.

"how did you deal with the lack of clear pieces for the upper cockpit?" - I ignored them  :angel: although if it bothers me I'll just hit it with some Clearfix.
