Those photos, are you sure they're not of the real plane?  Absolutely fantastic- it just looks REAL.

Menelaos, your finishes have gotten quite a bit better over the years. I'd have to say this looks as close to real as can be done, especially in B&W. Excellent sir!


in progress:

 1/32 Hase Me-109G2/R6
1/35 Su-85/ winter- attach to base
1/32 DH-9a USMC- Delivered to Flying Leathernecks Museum, MCAS Miramar
1/32 Mig-3:winter paint and weathering: in progress and base
Yacht America need some parts.

I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place...
Yes, I built models when I was a kid too.... no they're not toys....

Thanks guys.... The date was 1998..... Those great days are now gone...today there's not much time for modeling....
The NF is in my opinion one of the aerodynamic wonders of the aviation history... But a most dangerous one....

I wish I could have a time machine to go back at that time.....

You nailed it again Menelaos! Very interesting subject too.

 

Very realistic finish - what "NMF" paint did you use?

 

All the best

 

Adam

TNX Adam, I used the Humbrol metal cote silver that is a rub n buff paint mixed with gloss black in various mix for some regions on the fuselage... The real NF was even more polished if you look at some close up pics....but I think the result is ok... Best wishes Menelaos
