RMAF A-400M ATLAS 2015

The newly A-400M "Atlas" was added to the Royal Malaysian Air Force inventory back in early 2015 after its purchase by the 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 Revell 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 transporter aircraft was a pleasant experience and I hope do build more aircraft model kit in the future. Thank you.
