Aeronautica Imperialis has that World War 2 aircombat feel.  And like so many others, I decided to paint my aircraft like a RAF aircraft from WW2.

The Marauder Destroyer is a very similar to the RAF Mosquito.  Thus the plan is to paint the miniature like an RAF day fighter from WW2.

Below are some pictures of the Mosquito. The day fighter has the bottom half of the fuselage is a light grey and the top is a slightly darker grey with green.  Wanted to try using some masking and air brush to paint a stripe on the fuselage.  Often the propeller hub has a colour different the  rest of the aircraft. This will be duplicated by painting the engine inlets differently.

Primed and base coated with airbrush. Painted the fuselage stripe and then asked area. Continued to paint the base colours.

Just a note, let the paint for awhile before masking.

The green was painted by hand as this provide more control than the air brush.

Lead Beacher was applied to the guns and mechanical bits.  Some brass was applied to engine vents.

Painted the windows with a varying light blue paint and later highlight with white.

Red was applied to any lense or light.  The missiles painted white.  A splash of yellow was added to  break up the greys.  A light grey was used on doors on the bottom of the aircraft.  A little bit 9f black wash was applied to the metal bits.

The miniature is mostly painted. May do more with the wash or drybrush a highlight. Still would like to use the GW technical paint on the lenses to give a glossy effect. The base will be painted later.

Here it is at a table top quality painting.
