Evening all.  It's been a while, but I have been snowed under at work and at home.

Rob (M.A.D) asked for a few revisions to fit in with his ADF backstory, plus a few changes to the V384, mainly make the gun muzzles more obvious and add an arrestor hook, which is always a good idea on a carrier aircraft!

To go with that Rob asked if I could alter the Belfast to give it extra undercarriage for rough field capabilites, plus some more paint schemes.

As always, I'm happy to oblige.

First off revised RAN V384s, a two seater.



Then to show the multirole capabilities of the aircraft, one armed with Aim7 Sparrows and one with Matra rocket pods/fuel tanks.

As the main tactical transport for the RAAF, I added the new undercarriage and then put the Belfast in the colour schemes of the RAAF's C-130s and Caribous.

Early tactical scheme


Late tactical scheme


Caribou green scheme


Caribou army scheme


Caribou red desert scheme


Phew.  Right I'm going for a lie down now  ;)

Cheers

Mark

Bloody fantastic work thank you Mark
Love the two-seat V384, she looks great!
Very much appreciate your time and efforts as per usual - especially with you facilitating and incorporating my endless wants of tweaks   ;)
The Belfast's additional main landing gear colour schemes look cool  :P
You can now stand down my friend  ;D

On the profile request board Artoor asked for an F-4J in low viz Polish markings, so I thought I'd give it a go.

Cheers

It's been a long while since I posted anything.  2018 was not a great year, so whiffing took a back seat.

M.A.D asked me a long time back about an Electra based AWACS aircraft for the RAAF.  Here is my first stab at it.  I think I've undersized the radome, which I "nicked" from an E-2 Hawkeye.

And I also managed to find a real version, based on the P-3

While the Alize AEW debate rages, here are my attempts at an early Aeronavale version, with upper and lower radomes.
