Brilliant set, very crisp :clap:

D-Day Typhoon looks much better up close, now I've seen it in these pics it actually doesn't look bad at all. :smile:

Fantastic set Dan, probably your best one yet! D-Day stripe Typhoon looks okay with the stripes extended onto the wings, and the Triple X scheme is certainly growing on me

Nice sharp shots in what look pretty flat conditions.

D-Day Typhoon is properly bland though. :sad:

Lovely shots,

Really don't like the D-Day bird though, atleast your shots confirm that they are using vinyl on the fuselage you can see it is sitting slightly proud in the landing shot.

Looks like a busy day. I like the invasion stripes, it looks quite smart.

I don't normally bite, but following the 6 Squadron special, 29 squadron special and now the D Day special, I can't help but feel the critics are missing the bigger picture. To have any special schemes given the regulations, budgets etc is a real treat. Yes the schemes aren't "all encompassing" but they deliver the message they were designed to do, given the constraints.

Good work Gill & Berry ;)

Got to agree, one of your best sets to date Dan.
The bar-code looks very nice, but for me the climbing typhoon with burners is a prize-winner.
P.S. I reckon we're safe for fourth place hehehe :clap:

The specials look pretty good, generally, but why oh why haven't they put a full colour red-white-blue roundel between the XXX bars on the 29sqn jet? It would be a far better identifier than the 'corporate logo' beneath. :question:
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....
