It can be a difficult scheme to get right, and this looks good  :thumbsup:

How do you get an all white scheme wrong?  :-\

It's all one colour after all.
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 always find single colour schemes can be the problem Kit. They can look very stark or simply toy like, whereas this is excellent  :thumbsup: I'm never happy with the little armour that I do build because it tends to be Allied WWII and is basically one colour. Fine if being used for wargaming but not for stand alone models. I really do need to get some practice in.

A bit of weathering & dirtying helps, Chris, by breaking up the monotone. Doesn't have to be much, a little can go a long way (I tend to overdo it because I actually enjoy the process too much ;)).

That's my problem in that I always overdo it  :banghead:

I always  find that the model , especially single colour schemes , does not start to come alive until you start to add markings and stencilling. Certainly the stencilling can lift the appearance from the "toylike"  to something better.

Very much so Andrew. I always find the main markings bring it to life  :thumbsup: It can be easy to overdo stenciling I find, especially on quite plain colour schemes, plus I can get bored with some modern kits replicating, or at least trying to, every one the aircraft carried.

A completely random thought just crossed my mind. I wonder if anyone has ever considered a stencilling set for a 1/350 scale ship ? Wouldn't surprise me if they had.

That looks great, and there really were 'mini-TSR2s' proposed for carrier use in the 1960s (OR.396?).  :thumbsup:
