Good Morning Gents  ;D

Thanks for all the suggestions, and I agree with the logic of the night undersides with either grey, white or grey/green. I suppose my weak argument is that because that what WAS used on the heavy bombers (and yes the canberras and mosquitos) that is precisely why I want to go with a different scheme. Anyway the fuselage is not closed up yet or the wings attached to it, so still some thinking time to go!  ;D

Anyway, second draft drawing, colours the right way up, and a slightly more realistic roundel!



and a rough approximation of the Cranberry Scheme

I quite like  the second one,  very striking  colour scheme.  The one above  is a very similar version of what I  have painted my Super freighter,  which  is in Honduras navy  service.  :thumbsup:

I like that. In general, I feel big birds should have disruptive schemes - just because they seldom do. Look at the B-52, for instance. It was way cooler in the old SAC camo than is is now, being grey and dull.

But thatís just me, and if it is of any comfort, I rarely even myself take my own advice..  ;D
