    Exemplary and exhaustive Tweak Lists.
    You have MY  applaud for doing this and in a very factual
    way. Very Comprehensive indeed.
    I appreciate  your work on this.
    Amazing  work. 
    Are you going to review any new releases too like the new Tiger Moth by ICM.
     
    I dont know how I missed this.
    bookmarked.

    Thanks for the great info Maru, now I've got the proper name for artistic licence, just hoping I don't manage to blend them all out with the final finish!
    Inspirational build Blackbetty, I do like a good candy stripe and yours is spot on.
    I'd have loved to have seen these for real Aircommando, grey is so .... well grey really.

    Layering paint or to give its proper  name is a technique called Impasto . 
    Your  Impasto  painting has given depth to to your model.
    That is what it is meant to do, give a three dimensional depth  to whatever you use the layered painting. 

    Looks Very IMPRESSIVE..

    GORGEOUS &STUNNING  looking model. 
     
     
    I find  Corvettes designs aesthetically plessing and quite
    refined.  The elegant  lines  of the car  are smooth.
    Your Finished  model is Brilliant  to look at.
    The Yellow makes it pop more so.
     

    KUDOS ...

    He married an Aussie girl.
     
    No he lives in Queensland.

    (he did study Roman  History, and American  History amongst other subjects at London University   but his
    major was Biochemistry and other medical subjects!!).

    Is he here to study Rome? Closest I ever got was my library of Loeb classics. Rome is kind of far away. 
    Have you told him he's in the wrong place???

    forgot  to keep up with it.

     
    So as you linked this to another thread  Here I am.
    thanks.

     
    Just read through from the beginning.
     Your Eagle has turned out STINNING.
    you have built a truly SUPERB model.
    Loved  it.

    “As we climbed in the circuit the sun was pale above the horizon, throwing long shadows across the landscape of East Anglia. At 10,000 ft we joined the stream on its first leg, flying eastward and out of the golden light. A few minutes later we crossed the coast, with Cromer looking serene and at rest. I said a quiet farewell to my beloved England. Those same feelings would have filled the hearts of Geoff and Norrie, watching from their turrets. With luck P-Peter would bring us home in five and a half hours. Cromer would be in darkness, its people asleep in their beds. But, first there was Bremen.”

    Just a small update: I finished modifying the cowling and engines, and installed the scratchbuild radiators. First, a reference photo:
     

     
    Then the radiators before installing:
     

     
    And after:
     

     

     
    I've primed the landing gear bays, and will get them painted at the next opportunity before installing in the wings. After that the wings "should" go rapidly together, then it's on to the rudders and elevators. Until next time!

    John,
     
    Thanks! I was lucky that I had the right material. I was afraid someone would ask where I got it, because I forgot! I’m a real modeling packrat, and over the years I have collected a stash of shiny material, styrene pieces, and even screens. I found the small bag of screens in there without a label when I was rummaging. At a guess I ordered it from Sprue Brothers. Wish I could be more help!
     
    Cheers,  Tom

    Well, if you compare the picture of the model with the one of the full scale plane, it is clear you took the picture of the model from a very similar angle. However, the difference of lens type results in a very noticeable difference in perspective depth. Just to prove it compare the difference in length of the nose of both planes. The model one looks far longer whereas this is not the case.

    VERY nice! Moreover, this is one of my favorite schemes.
     
    This demonstrates once again that it is a pity Revell USA stopped making large scale kits. The eagle was one of their very last large planes, if not the last and it was quite a nice kit.
     
    I love your post showing the kit and the full scale plane. This looks like a tutorial for photographers as this clearly demonstrates the focal depth difference !
