1:100 Macross (Frontier) VF-25F 'Messiah' - WiP

This one will be camouflaged - a rather rare feature on canonic VF-25s, most are either really colorful or dull grey, with some color trim, very USN-style.


This one is whiffy/fictional, though, and I use the occasion to try out a scheme I had been wanting to "test" for a long time on a build: a wrap-around grey/blue air superiority scheme.


Even though it might remind you of the scheme tested on one of the YF-16 prototypes, this one here is actually an experimental Luftwaffe scheme, tested in the late Seventies (with many other alternatives) on F-4F Phantom IIs, which eventually led to the complex "Norm '81" scheme.


This one, a disruptive scheme made up from RAL 7038 (Achatgrau) and RAL 5015 (Taubenblau) on 37+51 earned the aircraft the inofficial nickname "Wolkenmaus". The scheme was not adopted, though, but it's pretty and should suit the VF-25 well - even though it looks VERY Su-27-ish with it...? O.o'
