  1. Amazing model, really a piece of art! The helicopter itself is already a difficult model to execute in full detail and you managed that successfully. But how did you paint all those tiny figures in such detail? Really incredible...
  2. This is a great looking model, I wonder how you manage to execute all painting and gluing and sanding so cleanly and neatly:) No paint overruns, no glueing errors, no lints, no dust, no nothing… Simply amazing work. I followed your comments re chrome painting process and it seems that chroming cannot be executed any better when you have to apply decals on it. Probably the model looks much much better and more chromy/shiny/realistic to naked eye, as camera sensors take reflected light from chrome paints more grainy than human eye. In any case, this is a brilliant model...
  3. With a better lighting, background and photography, I would think this should the actual aircraft. Very nice detailing and paint execution...
  4. I do not believe that these are scale models:)
  5. Great cockpit, really amazing. I would advice dropping just one drop of 2k car model varnish on each instrument bezel for a glass like look...
  6. For a glassy look, I guess the best is using two part auto clear gloss varnishes. They give a nice depth and glossy look to glass panels. You can drop a miniscule amount of varnish on each panel with a toothpick. Varnish has an excellent holding capability to vertical surfaces so it will not flow over the matt surface.
  7. Both models are fantastic, really great works with clever and realistic weathering...
  8. Really great work Chuck, I admire your neat and clean detail work If you have not finished your instrument panel, I would advice using 2k auto gloss lacquer for the glassy look in the IP dials. It would really look great with this amazing cockpit.
  9. Very nice build... Very realistic and clever weathering...
  10. Very nice work, really amazing result, contrats!!
  11. Hi Chuck, Really great paint and gloss coat job, very neat and clean! I had also bought Alclad's acrylic gloss coat with very high expectations and I have not been able to get at least satisfactory results with it. Reading a lot of positive comments on the net about the stuff, I was thinking that it was me getting bad results with my lack of experience or I may have bought a bad batch of the product. Now I see that you do not report positive results about the stuff after comparing it to more traditional stuff, I can happily use future or better, X-22... Thanks for your educational
  12. An amazing model, deserving better photography:)
  13. Wow, this is just great, there are amazing details everywhere... I really liked the cockpit. Just two small things: maybe the decals are not weathered enough compared to the rest of the aircraft and the decals could have been made better conform to panel lines and rivets etc...
  14. I am not much experienced in modelling but I guess this may improve the results: After applying microsol on decals, wait for, say half an hour, dip a clean cotton cloth in hot (or warm water) and press gently on the decals with the cotton cloth. Do not press hardly or do not move your fingers when pressing on the decals...
  15. Now, that is creative modelling at best!! I am really impressed with your solution...
