Default AI Thunderbolt

Just finished my first Thunderbolt (at last) not a great paintjob really but I spent as much time as I'm willing too on AI models at the moment while I've got other projects on the go, any comments/critisms welcome for when I get on with the rest of the squadron.

I would be nice to have brighter pictures but from what I can tell it looks really good.

Looks professional, I must say.

9/10 for the quality of the paintjob. ;D

Colors look excellent, even if the combination isn't my cup of tea.

I'll try an get some improved ones tommorrow, its been utterly gloomy and pouring with rain here all day and I lack any good daylight bulbs unfortunately. The foreground upper surfaces are a good guide to how the upper surfaces in general are done, the lower surfaces have similar highlights, they're completley lost in the gloom tho unfortunately.

I get the feeling that thing there's about the size of a Land Speeder, lengthwise. That's from pictures of a game, though, so I could be wrong...

But then, when have I ever been wrong? :P

That's a thing of beauty, just look at the highlighting on the wing panels! I really envy your detail work...I mean, I paint to a good standard, but seeing your models makes me realise how much further I have to go!

I love the colour scheme too. What will you call your squadron?

Heres a comparison for scale for you Pttocs & Lord-General Thunder, the minatures are the same as FWs Epic range, with a wing span of about 55mm.



I've no idea on a squadron name yet, the scheme is based losely on a WW1 Sopwith Camel so I may take some inspiration there.
