I've always been a fan of Macross/Robotech and loved the Enigma Squadron camo so I thought I'd give it a shot on an old crappy Skystriker I had. The Skystriker has no landing gear, was yellowing and the stickers were falling off, so I figured what better to test out the scheme. At some point i'd like to get a good quality Skystriker with landing gear, all the missles and a working canopy, but for now I think it turned out well. Let me know what you guys think and thanks for looking.

Nice paint job!
Since it doesn't have any landing gear, you could display it hanging from your ceiling. That would look even better.
I have several Joe and Cobra planes and helicopters hanging up... Looks really cool...

That looks excellent! Great job on the paint. Actually in the Mid 80's The Navy did play around with that style Camo Scheme. It was based on a pattern from the Swedish Military and it was dubbed the 'Splinter Scheme' They commissioned a person by the name of Keith Ferris to design a pattern for the F-14.
Here is a link: http://www.topedge.com/alley/squadron/pac/vf-1_02.gif
This other version was done for NSAWC, Navy's Top Gun:

In fact a lot of the things you seen in Macross Borrowed heavily from actual Tomcat squadrons and were tweaked a little for the series.
