RE: multicolor change
If the Vulcan had a uniform color it would be almost easy, but the camo pattern makes it very difficult, because it has to be removed first without losing the details... In other words the difficult part isn't the new multiple colors, it's the existing ones...

RE: multicolor change
Top one is much better than the bottom one; But you should really redo the roundels using ellipse selection, bucket-fill, and perspective.

I agree with ofnuts's comments.
Your efforts are admirable. Smile

Some suggestions I think you might consider...
1. The blue on the tip of the vertical stabilizer (tail) should be the same blue as the body.
2. Add some lines showing the Rudder, and Elevators/Ailerons.
3. Don't think you would see any red on the far side fuselage.

RE: multicolor change
Thanks lads ,me thinks iv put the unfinished bottom one up "doe"
Couldn't get the perspective to look round and fitting the body after loads of try's so give up in the end.See what you mean on the tail fin,i did think it needed to match the sky but its a little to much gap between the tip of the stabilizer and the top of the tail.
