Veebat's video review of this bundle indicates that bonus paint jobs can be obtained by purchasing the bundle, if one already has the plane but not the special paint.

 

I always thought one would have to sell the plane for silver before purchasing the bundle in order to get the paint.

 

If true I will be buying the IL-10M bundle next time it becomes available.

But I think you won't get the extra hangar slot if you already have the plane in your hangar.

Not really worried about that. I have more hangar slots than planes left to buy.

I'm not sure why he indicates it, but decoration set won't be credited to your account if you've already owned the Kostikov, and that is mentioned in the bundle description.

you're right about the hangar and he's right about the paint       so... completely strip it down, send the pilot to the barracks     

 

sell it, buy it again, re-spec it, and you've got everything but the time it took to strip it completely and re-equip it back       it's cumbersome      let us just buy paint, WG

if you listen carefully he doesn't say that he was given the paint job with the purchase. Instead, he says that re-purchasing the plane bundle gave him "Access" to the paint job. Is it possible that when rebuying the plane through the bundle that the special paint job then becomes available to buy for gold on the plane through the normal camo/paint system? In essence does it unlock the ability to then buy the special camo later with gold?

Does anyone have Veebat on their contact list? Maybe he can clarify that information.

I would suspect you do get access to the camo with purchase if you already own the plane.  This is how I got the $1 Black Friday camo and nose art a couple years ago when I already owned the Venom.  But based on my history with the premium shop I would NOT be shocked if you don't get what you think you've paid for.

That probably works universally if it worked with the Venom.

The only issue is these bundles cost a lot more than the $1 Venom. So it's hard to take a chance. 

I will be happy to purchase the bundle in order to gain the ability to buy the paint scheme at full gold price.

 

I hope blindfold can look into this.

If you sell the plane, then buy a bundle you will get the plane with the decoration set, as you don't have the plane on your account at the moment of purchase. Those steps were described here on forum by pilots many times. Drawbacks - specialization progress resets (but if you have purchased specialist configuration, it will remain after re-purchasing the plane) and no gold compensation (though you'll receive some credits for selling the plane).

No, you won't get the decoration set if you have the plane on your account at the moment of purchase. It worked with the Venom because it was the special that worked that way, this fact was additionally mentioned in the announcement. It doesn't work universally.
