Only one? 3 have managed to find their way into my stash :D

The colour is very close to the C-17 AMC Grey, I have seen a nice build where the maker used Xtracrylix Dark Camo Grey.

Are you aware Babibi Models has an A400M sheet in 1/72 for production aircraft? I have the sheet and it includes RAF options (ZM400 - 407). Available from Hannants

Hi Trev
I actually make the RAF version in both 1:72 and 1:144 scale there on ebay most of the time due to the demand for them
Or you can PM me for a set
