Looks good to me rick. They were also used as A/C tugs in the field
Yes, I've seen footage of them towing aircraft, i have a Flightpath airfield accessories kit that has a tow arm so I have that option to add some interest.
A bit of progress on these over the last week or so. So they are assembled for painting with the cockpit surround and canopies sprayed black then a primer coat, after that the grey followed by the green. Applying the white tack worms was a real drag, twice over! This wrap around camouflage scheme is just horrible to do, I got a bit cross eyed at times. I used foam ear plugs cut length ways for the intake masking blanks, I will try using this to replicate intake blanks on the finished model.
Its all coming along very nicely Rick
Now unwrapped. There was a fair bit of touch up required where the maskol didn't cover the grey - this is the first time trying the camouflage this way as I didn't fancy cutting up loads of tiny bits of masking tape for the infills.
You can see some of the add on bits, I applied a lighter shade of green to the top side of the drop tanks and also on the aircraft.
Been there done that with the tac rolls. Great work on the wrap around scheme Rick, looking very good.
