i have several photos of Iranian BH.7 Mk 5, but none of good resolution. Does anyone can provide good photos of these hovercrafts? If yes, please post them in my thread for sources about British hovercrafts.

Is there a reason to think the parts-sheet parts would not be the same gray as the hull?

he is talking about the launchers, gun and WM egg being a lot lighter grey then the rest of the drawing for some reason (and you could possibly include the radar and liferaft as well)

I took the WM egg from a Dutch parts sheet I have in my computer (obviously not latest version), radar is from SR.N4 drawing and liferaft from Blackbuck ships, I think is better from part sheets (these are very old). The launchers are dummy, I am saying it, as appear in illustation.

I will try to draw the curious OTO Melara from the illustatoon and then one more with correct Sea Skua missiles and Sea Cat.

We do not have in parts sheet Exocet MM40 lauchers in profile. Only MM38.

the colour. just. the. colour.
the parts themselves are fine, but why are they light grey while the hovercraft is dark grey?

With re-painted WM egg (assume that it would be WM-25 because of Sea Skua/Sea Cat missiles in one variant). The GWS-24 Sea Cat used the Italian Alenia Orion RTN-10X fire control system (Type 912 for Type 21 frigates, the Signaal WM-25 also has SARH guidance. Another option could be WM-28.

For re-painting the Signaal "egg" I followed the original, but with variations of grey.
