  1. I did similar for my Su-25 base but plaster not resin and in various shapes as I'm not sure what combination use.
  2. Yep, that’s what I was affraid of. KRL, I saw picture of yours Nighthawk on Modelwork, but forum is currently unavailable due to migration. Could post some pictures here?
  3. I need some help... Some time ago I've started Trumpy's Nighthawk. Simple build - complicated paint job but worst of all are those flat exhaust. I was not able to find any good reference photos - well there is a lot of them actually but most of them is small, bad quality, photoshoped etc. On those which are quite good exhaust looks very different, from something brownish rusty thought dirty whites to shining metal. Please help as model went quite well and I do not want to ruin the whole effect with bad exhaust.
  4. Thank you Urs. True. Well, in fact looking for some more photos of the real postument I found two versions of this plane. One was just right after blue camo was painted. Colors were crazy and the whole plane looked really unnatural with bright blue. :-D Second one was some time after the first one where colors were faded. But even then, plane was looking very good, without rust, streaks, etc. I prefered the second one, but I've added some streaks only. ;-) Thank you very much D.B. I'm really glad that you like my work.
  5. Thanks John. I could not find any resin intake here in Poland that's why I decided to do a kit's one. Thank you Harv. In the meantime I'v upgraded a canon as kit's one was terrible: And started shading bombs and missiles: as well as resin parts:
  6. Here you go: Thank you Bill. I haven't noticed such streaks on the real plane on monument, that's why I didn't add them to my model. Thank you very much.
  7. Thank you Sir. For kind words and great idea for final photo. I'm not sure why I didn't thought about it.
  8. I must say that I'm not sure how I did it. It just happened but thank you very much for your kind words. I'm always saying to myself that next one will be OOB but somehow in magical way some aftermarket addons are found on my workbench. ;-) Go ahead and start your Flogger - it was a very nice build. Model is very good in my opinion. Iain - thank you very much. It was the hardest thing to recreate and I was not sure how to do it. Then I just put some wash then push the tissue folded in four to the wing and start moving the wing. I repeat this process 3-4 time for every part of wing until I decided that's enough. Thank you Kev. I'm very happy. Thank you. You build 270 planes?!? WOW, that's something I would not expect. Congatulation. I do not think I will live long enough to get close to 200. Thank you very much.
  9. Finally Aires set arrived. I tried to fit whell wells, so I had to cut some of the plastic, but it looks promising: I had to get rid also the imitation of front well from the air intake: I cut also some to the parts in the exhaust cover. I will try to do them from the proper size piece of HIPS: Air intake was painted before gluing as later I wouldn't be able to paint it properly: It will be hard to sand this putty:
  10. Thank you very much. Hie Kev. Thank you for very nice comment. Yes, of course you can publish it. Thanks again. Big thanks Jay. Dziękuję bardzo.
  11. Thank you very much Alan for your comment. Of course you can choose what option suits you best. I like it too, however the monument plane has something mesmerizing in it. Thank you very much Chuck. I'm happy that you like my work.
  12. Thank you Jarda. Big thanks Harvey. Thank you very much Rod. Thanks. Thank you very much Thunda. I'm glad that you like my ideas.
  13. Thank you very much Lothar. Thank you Peter. John, thank you. I'ts nice to read that my work became inspiration for you. I know that your model will be very good.
  14. Thank you all. Please also take a look at the photos of finished model: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=60087&hl=
