  • These look great Tall Paul….thanks for the close up…  Painted by Hoffman?  These pieces are very tiny I know the pictures are zoomed in so its hard too tell. Just handling them I was discouraged from painting.  The decals must have been a nightmare to do! but well worth it with these results.

  • I’m running out of words here…but again simply awesome and the lettering and numbers on the fuselage is just captivating.  Those fw 190’s look as deadly as they flew.  Being a new fan of the “customization” thread this warmachine project is exciting to follow, and inspiring for game pieces.  Cant wait too see the afrika corps air units tall paul, and Russian winter schemes!!  thanks for sharing

    Guys,

    ––Here’s a pic of the DO-17 Medium Bomber in the German Green camo scheme. Notice the “M” decal which denotes a Medium Bomber. These were almost letterred with an “R” to make them Recon aircraft since they actually served in this capacity and there are so far there are already three (3) German Medium Bombers available; HE-111, JU-88, and the DO-17. Enjoy!

    They look great!  Do the different nose colours have any particular significance in terms of using the pieces?

    CWO Marc & others,

    @CWO:

    **They look great!  
    ––Thanks, I’m glad you like them. It also helps me to know I’m doing something right when I get ‘good’ feedback like this.
    Do the different nose colors have any particular significance in terms of using the pieces?
    ––YES,…in two different ways;
    1.) My Air Transports are the ONLY aircraft that I allow to use WHITE ‘squadron colors’. IMHO the White color boldly emblazoned on the noses and wingtips set these aircraft apart and should notify/warn ALL players that these are aircraft with ‘SPECIAL’ capabilities (Paratroop Drops). I also believe that the White coloring sub-consiously makes a connection to their white parachutes.
    2.) Segregating all of my aircraft into squadrons of two to four aircraft that are all painted alike helps in many ways other than just cosmetically. It helps to designate where particular aircraft originated from or are assigned to in the game. For example, the Yellow-nosed Germans would be the “Abbeyville Boys” based in western France and the red-nosed Germans could be based in Norway, etc, etc.
    ----Some players might disagree with me 100% but that’s just fine. This system was designed to aid me and my fellow players and I totally respect any/all players personal opinions/preferences. All I can say is that this system works well for me, and I’m very happy with it. Thanks for the incisive question.

    ––Check out the ‘squadron’ colors of this Japanese KI-61.

    Thanks for the answer.  The white colour-coding is definitely nice from an aesthetic point of view, but I’m wondering if it might have an unplanned down side from a gaming perspective.  To a ruthless opponent, the white colour-coding might well identify these aircraft as high-priority targets because if he can shoot them down on their outward trip he’ll not only eliminate the planes, he’ll also eliminate the airborne troops inside them before they have a chance to reach the ground.  Think of it as a well-advertised two-for-one special bonus deal.  :-D

    ––One of the MAIN reasons for marking the Air Transports with the bold White coloring is for the OPPONENT to be aware of the capabilities,…and for him to be able to make any offensive or defensive adjustments to his forces.
