1/144 scale Airbus A-400M (RMAF) scheme

September 3, 2018 · in Aviation · · 8 Comments

Good day to all !

This is my first post regarding aviation subject lets start with a brief history of the aircraft . The A-400M "" was added to the Royal Malaysian Air Force inventory back in early 2015 after its purchase by the Malaysian Ministry of Defense. The A-400M will be undertaking countless transportation tasks which was previously carried out solely by the RMAF C-130 Hercules.

This model kit is manufactured by in 1/144 scale which is quite huge given its small scale generally. The only conversion that made this into a RMAF version was the roundels as it was custom printed by myself using decal sheet. The overall grey used is C335 Mr.Color which suits the Malaysian scheme. Overall it was a textbook build with little gaps here and there which was treated using putty and filler. In my opinion doing my first 1/144 scale transporter aircraft was a pleasant experience and I hope do build more aircraft model kit in the future. Thank you.
