Is fine profiling.  :)
Republic of Stralya is favorite.    Dominican Republic too, camouflage and tiger teeth engines.
Can you do one serving in 1950s SAC (silver & white)?

Beautiful work.

May I  request a RNZAF Lancaster? Glossy Sea Blue on top and Insignia White underneath. Some of the their PBY's were painted this way.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Raafif,

Very nice indeed, but I'm wondering why the Pakistan Lincoln is wearing the markings of Mauritania?

Of course, for a slightly different scenario for Japanese Lancasters, you could say that Japan was on the Allies side in WWII against Germany - after all they were in WWI.

Either way, great profiles.

Great stuff! Personal fav is the 1948 Libya Lanc (although those Kenyan markings are wonderful too!).

why the Pakistan Lincoln is wearing the markings of Mauritania ?

1. kiwiLanc started

2. will try but silver is very hard to do in MS Paint.

3. wrong markings ?? .... plausible denyability !!  words fixed.

early & late NZAF Lancs. (should the blue extend down further on the late scheme ??)




SAC Lincoln ... I think the scheme looks better on a B-50.

Thanks so much for the SAC version.  Good to see profile of it - interesting.
I agree on B-50

I really like your alternative Lancs & Lincolns, raafif! Your N. Italian markings are neat. I can see them keeping the House of Savoy cross. Many Italians while being anti-fascist were still supporters of the king.

Nice work!

Thanks for the profiles. The only image I have of RNZAF patrol A/C is a PBY in an AeroMaster decal set. Your second image is what the PBY has. The GSB just barely extends past the upper part of the fuselage.

How about a Pacific Theater A-Bomb aircraft?  If the B-29 had not been capable of lugging the Gadget to Japan, the plan was to use a Reverse Lend-Lease Lancaster to bomb the target.

Well, Raafif? ;D
