It does look the part  :D

As for fiddly parts ... depicting an airplane in flight would eliminate a few vulnerable ones - but then you'd need a way to suspend it in the air.

Thanks. Yup, she came out pretty much as I imagined right at the beginning.

Although I can see that airborne jets probably reduce the fiddly factor to a minimum, I donīt think that I will be seduced to the dark side any time soon!  :o  As for ships... well they do have turrets, which is a start but...  ;)

Character --- with that unique contrasting bright color scheme it has its own special kinda "character" that RW type schemes don't have.  Is fun (if you will) just to look at the pictures.   :)
