finally, another mission is complete! what a satisfaction!
as i already said this model has been a pain to paint but in the end the result is wonderful, at least in my opinion. let me tell you something about this model. first of all there are no conversions except the weapons (check them out here and here).
second: i've also painted the machinegunners but the hatches got somehow glued by the paint while it was drying so i couldn't put them in place but i will for sure, even if i don't pay them.
the colour scheme and the labels layout is clearly borrowed from ww2 aircrafts.
i thought that a white underbelly scheme could be a good idea to disguise the aircraft, preventing enemy AA batteries to hit it.
also, a low visibility identification number on the rear ramp should be useful. on this model there is no standard lettering like on my Leman Russ, because of concealment needs.
Aquila signs on both wings to identify the aircraft as a loyalist vehicle.
scorches and wear on engines and fuselage... and another low visibility identification number.
from left to right: company designation (8th company, recon), killcount, squadron designation (5th squadron).
