My doodlebug is a bit 'average' so I was wondering how I could make it look more visually interesting, while still keeping it accurate.

I thought about painting the underside with Luftwaffe blue or adding panel lines in a darker shade of green?

Any other ideas?


Thanks :O)

I painted mine in camo with a blue underside.

worn metal scratches to nose and wing leading edge, and some dirt and stains around the engine exhaust perhaps,

I always liked the look of standing directly above it, and firing some green spray paint straight down. Love the foggy transition from green on top to blue gray on the bottom.

Chalked on "Eat this Tommy!" graffiti?

This is how the one in my hometown of Greencastle, Indiana is painted.

Thanks chaps,

I think I may try the light blue undersides plus a bit of arty worn metal bits.

I also wondered about modelling some sort of pulse jet effect out of the back end of the rocket engine, perhaps using strectched sprue?

How did one end up in Indiana?

That is an interesting story.

Perhaps some camo. mottling along the sides of the craft, like is done on their fighter aircraft.

Model some flame exhaust from the rear of the engine. Does not have to be much, but a little color will catch the eye.
