Very cool. I like the simple desert camo paint job. Is that an extra fuel tank on the side? I once saw one these painted with a twi'lik dancing girl on the side. Kind of a mascott like you would see on WWII bombers or helicopters. It might be cool to have something like that here. I definately like the additions.

to answer your question its actually supposed to be a jamming pod, i might get around to painting it a different color and I still need to give the whole thing a wash. your idea sounds pretty cool I might try my hand at one of those

What might look even better is to change the wording into that imperial font. (I can't remember the name) You could do this by getting Testors decal system. This lets you print out pictures onto clear decal paper. You then cut it out and peal the decal off by getting it wet. This is just like the decals that come with model cars. I did this for the tatoos on my twi'lik warrior.

Agreed, the gunship looks really cool, and very believable.  Not overdone, it fits in perfectly with Star Wars... I'd maybe look into adding some cannons to the front however... but very nicely done and I like the cargo netting in the interior.

Nice job.  What gunship did you start off with?  It looks like you painted the whole thing beige prior to applying your design.  The black canopy probably indicates the Saga Clone Wars version but not sure.  How long did it take you to work on?  Very cool...

I took the revenge of the sith gunship and did black accents on it , then painted the whole thing black then i decided to  add the camo I started off with khaki spray and did olive stripes on it then I lightly misted over the gunship with khaki and olive . it only took one day to do the camo.

Very nice work overall on that gunship. The spray painted camo pattern looks quite realistic, as far as I can tell. A'denn on the nose is a nice touch to begin with, but I'd like to see it touched up in Aurek or something like that (like Phruby said). Or maybe even in a Mando font (if there is one?). I'm very interested to see what you can make with that Testor decal system, once you have some decal sheets again  8)
