One man and his 'Hog - part 2

Behold the completed Warthog.  I opted for a basic two-tone green camo and used some of the decals from the kit.


I know the real Hog is built round it's main weapon - a 35mm cannon - but it seemed only reasonable to hang some explody stuff on the wings.  So now it's all ready to support my US forces in Little Cold Wars games next year.

Cheers,

It really is a stumpy wonder of a plane.

I have deep personal reasons for loving that ugly flying dump truck, two of them saved my butt once! Nice job on this Tim!

Even my Shilka might hit a target this big!

There's certainly no mistaking it for anything else!

I might paint that on the 'hog's nose - 'Don's butt-saver'....

I'm sure you were as pleased as Don to see them.

Thanks for the link - the 'hog in the film is so badly damaged it looks worse then mine!

Nicely done Tim. It does look a little naked without those pylons filled.
