Not for me. I'm just not feeling the re-paint, to be honest. The black is cool, but why not make it a true variation by painting a new scheme entirely? 21st Century has several re-paints to their vehicles/planes and it makes the vehicles completely different looking so you don't feel like you just bought 2 of something. This Gunship doesn't pull it off for me - sorry.
The battle damage sucks, too, it's like there was a head-wind strong enough to rip the paint off of the ship, giving it a Migrane Zebra look... Whatever happened to the blast marks?
