  1. You're doing a fine job on this beauty Mike. What a tremendous model.
  2. Beautiful work Max. That's a fine looking Fury. Keep it up.
  3. That's a cracking model Rod. Beautiful photography too. The above image gets closest to reality for me. In this pic the tonal variation of the paint seems very authentic looking and in scale. The pre-shade is suitably subtle on this side of the model which seems to create a suggestion of surface texture beneath the cockpit that looks real. Neat addition of the chock btw. That definitely adds to the realism. Another wonderful recreation Rod, thanks for sharing and bravo! Cheers.
  4. Mattcour, thank you for posting the images of the kit. The photos are crisp, clear and show the kit in great detail. It's obvious that alot of thought has gone into the design of the parts and the kit looks superb. Like many I am eager to see one of these built. I hope you will be able to make an in-progress thread to share your adventure. JetMads deserve every success for bringing this to the market. It would appear that they are selling the whole production run so that alone might encourage them to continue bringing modellers what they ask for. This modern technology is revolutionising scale modelling. Genuinely exciting
  5. Nice job Crew Dog. Those circuit breaker panels in the RIO's pit will have you seeing double Keep at it.
  6. Splendid job Pete. It looks like you're having a ball playing with these new, fun techniques. You've captured the wet look on the pilot nicely and the pose looks spot on. Very cool
  7. Eager to see how this looks. Very much looking forward to seeing someone build a splinter cammo version. Unpainted metal is also cool as is the light grey with huge dayglo numbers. Thinking about it, is there a bad looking Viggen
  8. This is an interesting article. The modelling looks superb. I'm not on Facebook so would folk please keep everyone updated on the model's progress? I applaud HK for bringing the big Lanc to market but the detail in these shots is another step up. Very nice.
  9. Hi Crew Dog and Chris, it's been a long time since I touched my model and my memory is a bit hazy on this subject but I seem to remember something. Have you guys looked at reference photos of the real bird in that area? Did the Navy use some form of sealant on panels in that area of the Tomcat? If so that might explain why the raised panel lines are restricted to this portion of the model. Anyhoo, good luck with your big Turkey Crew Dog. It's always good to see a large scale Tomcat built.
  10. A lovely build of that diminutive little aeroplane Mike. The combination of materials is replicated to perfection and the figure adds a nice sense of scale. Good job
  11. Hello Gansolino, that's a splendid introduction. Brilliant to see your big 'Cat completed after all of that time. You've done a splendid job I completely agree with red dog, the scythe display pole is a clever and unique touch. Great job
  12. Hi Mike, exemplary work as usual. although your photography is first rate it's a little difficult to see how you integrate the Gaspatch turnbuckles into the line. It appears as though you thread your line through the tube then loop it through the tiny eyelet in the end of the 3D printed turnbuckle then miraculously pass it back into the tube and adhere it some way? That must take enormous patience not to mention a very steady hand? Also, how do you tension the whole line between struts please? Brilliant modelling, keep it up.
  13. Good grief I'm lost for words. In other news, my first copy of "Crocheting for Beginners" arrived in the post so I'm looking forward to getting into that.
  14. Wait,...........is that your model or a real chopper?
  15. This is just so,.....................beautiful.
  16. Looking very smart Max. Did you spay a clear coat under the roundel mask before adding the white?
  17. Tremendous attention to detail Mike. The fidelity you achieve in this scale is remarkable.
  18. Nice job Tim. Always a pleasure to see one of these big kits finished and congratulations for sticking with it. Just an observation for anyone else building one of these. It's worth checking references for the exhaust staining over the top of the wing. Some aircraft don't show much staining on the most outboard exhaust as the wingtip dihedral could often carry it under the wing instead. She'll look great next to the B-17. It would be fascinating to see a side by side to compare relative sizes if you ever get a chance Tim.
