In an effort to paint more vehicles, I decided to kick things off with this delightful little piece by ClearHorizon Miniatures.
Only a couple of inches long, it comes as a kit of a surprising 8 pieces. It's a bit fiddly to make, but well worth the effort. It comes with optional landing gear (increasing the parts to 11), which I opted to use because I don't see myself using this in anger, it'll be an objective or piece of scenery.
If you're thinking of using it as airpower, the only weapons are internal as evidenced by the holes in the fuselage just behind the cockpit.
So as a stealth VTOL, it felt natural to make it dark. I used purple and black as I was inspired by photos of rather gothic wedding in Bakersfield, CA recently. (Congrats again Fred and Kris!)
