I have a extra AOTC Gunship and was thinking of Painting it Black and use the Shadow troopers in it or do a Camo job and use some Gree's. I Like the black best though. I also thought about a all white with different gray tones and use ROTS Snow dudes if they ever make them.

You could paint it like the old WWII bombers. The dark olive green and maybe some creative nose art and maybe some little bomb symbols on the sides to represent successful bombing missions. I know it's not what you were going for but it's just a thought.

That's a great idea too. I could use Aayla as a pin up girl on the side.

I like the WWII bomber idea too. Paint it gunmetal grey, put little rivets and accents like Slicker said. Aayla pin up sounds cool too, or maybe Slave Liea. You could easily take a magazine picture and glue-brush it on (then maybe re-paint around the edges of the image).

I would try one myself since I have an extra gunship too, but I suck at painting...:whip:

how about an X-Wing sort of paint scheme?

whatever you decide to do, just don't make it purple!

Wow! $250 for that thing? You could pay someone at a hobby shop to do a much better job for much less. I don't know why I always get amazed at the stupidity of people that have lots of money. The one in that link from RS trumps this one ten fold.

The one on RS have great weathering affects. I don't like the pods though. I like my customs better. I do like the Gunship being Green on the e-bay auction. It looks like a Airbrush is needed to duplicate that one. I was thinking of just using spray paint and masking areas off.

Black has always been my favorite color. I like your original idea best and have been planning the same thing. Black ship (with weathering) Black pilots Utapau Shadow Troopers, and a buddy of mine is making me a custome Shadow Commander out of one of the #33 Clone Commanders. I am thinking of adding some grey stripes a la the Shadow Troopers and a black Speeder Bike (maybe striped) as well.

Ooh now that's a sweet idea. Dang they need to rerelease the gunship! Preferably the correct movie colors. But for customs anyone will do. (well except the clone wars one as that's alot of paint to have to cover up...)

painting it black might be a good idea and use shadow troopers.i saw that the new clone pilot for the sage seris has a black variant. so he could be a....shadow pilot.

You could paint it bright purple and say it's Mace Windu's Gunship.

Yeah, I think I will do just that! I will include a Disco ball in the cargo area, for all the funk after all the many battles. I might even throw a LAKERS sticker on the side like the Clones Wars Gunship shark face.:thumbsup:
