Further painting on the air support. Russian aircraft in GSFG seemed to carry 3 colour schemes in the early 1980's. Out with the paints and my best matches seem to be Nato green and brown. They then got a wash and drybrush.
Mig 27's recieved a stripy scheme.
The SU-25 was supposed to have a factory applied scheme. I quick search didn't seem to bear this up, so I just painted a 3 colour scheme.
Likewise the Su17's. I'm quite happy with the way these models have turned out (missing Russian stars not withstanding). They are working out as I had envisaged. I'm not to sure about the cockpit colour at the moment, I might need to look at something slightly lighter.
With the modern aircraft turning out well, I decided to revisit the WW2 ground support aircraft that I had purchased at the same time. I glued some brass wire to some Typhoons and gave them a dark grey undercoat. I had previously based some P-47's in a 4 on one base on one mounting armature. This resulted in a pretty structure but the aircraft were a bit close for some. The typhoons were mounted in 2's but with the armatures spaced out on the base which I think looks a bit better.
