Bellanca Decathlon


Recommended Posts

Fictional paint on the Bellanca Decathlon, I got inspired by the cream Electra of aharon's I decided to do one myself but mine is a bit smaller lol.

The cream gives it a nice clean look as well, the aircraft was first introduced in 1970 in the USA, over 6000 built.

what a cute aeroplane! Nice paints too

As for comments on the paint:

I agree on the spinner, either chrome or a matching color would have been better.

Also, the RAF never had painted rudders like that, just a small fin flash on the tail, but the French, they did have rudders like that, though they usually covered the entire rudder...oh well

If you use type C roundels, I would use a type C fin flash as well, so with a small white line.

I also think that the antiglare panel on the nose would look better if it was a bit smaller and just covered the top part of the nose.

But hey, that's just my two cents..

Now put a type B roundel on top of the wings (so without any white), and lower the fin flash to just above the elevator, a bit like this:


for a WW2 warbird look. On the other hand, for a postwar RAF aircraft, put type D roundels on all 6 positions, and give the fin flash a wider white part like this:



Personally, I would extend the anti glare panel a bit more forward, and give it a rounded front

Thanks Jan, as you can tell I Know next to nothing about Military aircraft, I did the spinners on both plus added roundels, I will alter the tail flash next.






Ahhh, that spinner looks so much better white! Very nice Col!

Lovely thread and nice repaints, Colin, the first one was more like inter-war era livery of the RAF (re: Jan Kees' comment) they did the rudder fin but also put the a/c number on it as well). You're doing an admirable job nonetheless.
