    Default Official Roland C.II painting thread

    This is not a total repaint for a WOW Roland C.II but I didn't like the pink paint job so I over-painted the pink with brown around the detail to be kept and I also tidied some other areas of the plane which didn't look very good.

    A decided improvement on the Nexus effort Don.
    I don't know what it does to the enemy but it scares me a lot more than the pink one did.(with apologies to the Duke.)

    Those are exceptionally well painted machines Kev. It is a pity that we are not running a Roland painting comp at the moment. One of those would be a sure fire winner.

    So I could not find any cool paint jobs I liked, so I offer these "fantasy-but not out of the possibility realm" repaints!



    I like the green, looks authentic . . .





    But I really like the streaky dark blue . . .





    Now my dilemma . . . a few more G & T's and I might just do this . . .



    Vote now, vote once, only live people and elves please . . . red line : ) is midnight tonight PST . . .

    Here is my first Roland, a sting in the tail scorpion. Plane is a Shapeways.
    I like Clippers Red and black, may have to try my hand at something on that scheme.

    Thanks Nick. I brought it to Doncaster but didn't get to fly it. Someday soon I hope...

    So you've painted a Beaufighter?

    Thanks. Yes, they are hand painted. I wanted something unique and with a sting in the tail theme.

    I also have a Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter with bees on the upper wing and one on each side of the fuselage. Have to take some photos of that soon.

    My wife will get all the dragons. She seems keen on all the Sopwith variations. She loves her Dragon Pup, next painted dragon will be a Triplane and/or 1 1/2 Strutter.

    Here is a Roland C.II my younger brother Greyson repainted all on his own. He used no decals, he just painted carefully around the existing markings. Very impressive for a 12 year old!

    Very good painting around those decals Nick. Your bro must have a very steady hand.

    Default Mauve and green Roland

    I love the planes you've all painted here - and the non-regulation ones are tons of fun!

    Here is my addition to the Roland thread - no particular unit (that I'm aware of) is being portrayed...but I liked the shark mouth and eye so I added it and the black and white stripe at the rear of the fuselage. It's the brown and green Wings of Glory Roland repainted - painted in Vallejo acrylics, with the olive being a bit lighter - it matches the colors on my repainted Halberstadt DIII.

    I've always thought the purple and green combination was really an inspired one, Rob. Back in the mid 60s when my dad was building and painting the old Aurora 1/48 scale planes, he did several Albatros models with the green and purple wings - and I've loved the mix ever since. I think it shows up really nicely on these little 1/144 models, and it looks neat on the playing mats - not a bad camouflage, too (not surpisingly)

    I'm sure I'll do at least one other Roland and a couple more Halberstadts, ultimately with the intention of flying them together in a game sometime...but I think I may go back on this one and the Halberstadt and apply a wash to pick out some of the details.

    All the best,
    Matt

    What Vallejo colors did you use Matt? I want to liven up my Halberstadt that I think is too dark. Your colors must look great on the table!

    Thanks, guys - I'm glad you like the colors!

    The green is Vallejo 857 'Golden Olive' and the purple is 811 'Violet Blue' (or sometimes it's labeled 'Blue Violet')...but I really like the way they make the planes 'pop' in this smaller scale. I used these on both the Roland above and the Halberstadt on that thread.

    Hope they work out to your satisfaction, Peter

    All the best,
    Matt

    Good Lord No!!!!!

    The shark mouth is a decal - it's a 1/200 scale Bf110 Eastern Front squadron, decal set by "mehusla 1/144 Direct", sadly no longer trading. Fortunately I managed to snag two truck loads of his decals in his closing down sale on ebay a couple of years ago.

    Thanks for assuming that I'm capable of such fine detail!
