Not a Phantom or Super Hornet, but... a Rhino.

Painted this alongside the Brontosaurus display

Its hard to see, but I actually used two shades of gray - Gunship and Euro 1.  I wanted two similarly shaded grays that were distinguishable up close.
Man, we should have cloned twenties. Jackson wouldn't have given a poo-poo.


Very, Very, very nice. That is a skillfully done paint job, well done that man I am envious.
Mind you for this forum it should have been in three (at least) shades of PINK :wub:

Thanks guys, I guess I should have whiffed it more.  A good idea may have been to get an armor kit, and graft random bits on it to look like an up armored fighting machine!

Most of the rhino pics I saw online didn't have much contrast between the horns and the skin tone.  So the underside and horns were painted Gunship gray, while most of the body was painted Euro 1.  So the horns are a different color than the rest of the body, but it blends in pretty well.

Guess I'm used to seeing to many beasts in my local GW with bleached bone horns/tusk/teeth with various washes on them......great paint  :thumbsup:
