Hi guys,

I would like to present you my recently finished Boeing F3B from Lukgraph

WIP thread you can find here

 

Overall it was easy relaxing build, with just few minor things to correct

Painted with Mr.Color and Mr.Paint paints, subtle wetahering with Ammo products

 

There is not much reference online for this particular plane, even I did at the end quite extensive research.

So mostly I was following instructions  :)

What I really liked, was the painting  process, because these command planes were maintained to highly polished finish.

So no heavy weathering was needed.

 

Still I am working on flight deck base, but did not finished it yet, so will post some photos later.

 

Hope you like it  :rolleyes:

 

Thanks for looking and any comments are welcome

jan

Very nice build of a good looking aircraft :yahoo:

 

Looks far more like an aerobatic aircraft than a warmachine.

Jan,

  I followed your build from start to finish, and was impressed on just how easy you made a not so easy build look. The finished build is simply outstanding with a specactular glossy paint finish. Looking forward to  your next Lukgraph kit build.

Now that's a really nice and exotic looking model you got there Jan. This is such a piece of art that you don't see often appear, so, it's nice to see that you did a magnificent job on this model. :goodjob:

Great build thread, and gorgeous result.

These command aircrafts had such a beautiful scheme. And the base looks great too !

Well done, Jan !
