    RAF Liberators got a reaction from ringleheim in HobbyBoss B-24 Liberator   
    Hey folks,
    I'm normally a lurker here, I don't tend to post outside of my regular sites just read other peoples stuff. But I've been told I should post this over here so here I am, cap in hand showing you my finished bird. It's out the box and yes I'm fully aware of all the shortcomings of the kit, Davis Wing, Turrets yardy yar etc etc  
    I've put Master Model Barrels on it and some RB belts, not that you can see them, but other than that she's El Naturel
    Finished in Alclad, Gunze and Ushchi metal powders, weathered with Mig products.
    Thanks for looking and be gentle.........

    It was an absolute doosey to build it literally fell together, most of the kit was almost push fit, it went together that well. I was able to build the whole cockpit area and all the interior as dry fit then take it apart and paint it.
    I'm definitely going to be getting at least one more of these and the D, the D I'll do as a Mk. III in RAF use, either as Coastal Command or 205 Group.

    I'm a coward when it comes to sharing my stuff, I model mostly for the art ,accuracy plays 2nd place and I see too many trolls on the various forums who will spend more time belittling a kit for it's shortcomings than they do actually building it, this puts me off posting outside of my comfort zone. I have people tell me my stuff is good but to be honest I still lack confidence, this is my 1st push and you'll probably see it posted over Facebook a lot. At least I've got my 5 minutes of fame, it's all downhill from here 
    I've posted the build log on Facebook and a couple forums, someone said I should post over here as well. So I went to what I thought was LSP only to realise after I'd post that I'd posted on the other Large Scale site, I'm member of both and Chrome just logged me in, so if you see the same post over there it's not because I'm a posting whore lol

    I've always said self commendation is no recommendation.
    I'm happy to laugh and joke when at shows about my our stuff but there are much better modellers out there.
    It took years before I started entering competitions with my models, but these days I generally walk away with at least one 1st, but I still don't rate my stuff that high especially when I see some of the works of people on here for example.
    Yes I'm very happy with the outcome of this kit, Initially I wasn't going to share it outside of my own space but as more and more people have seen it they've either shared it or told me to share it in other places so I have.
    Yesterday I got contacted by the Australian disty for HobbyBoss who want to use my photos, so the ball would appear to still be rolling on this

    Wow! That is a super impressive build! 
     
    Yes, there are a lot of na-sayers on this kit, but generally LSP is about the journey, and since we dont allow trolls or trolling, LSP is a bastion of helpful modelers all interested in helping each other, and looking at gorgeous models like this one! And it is too.....
    Kev is right, please do post your stuff here as I think you'd fit right in.
     
    Cheers, and very well done indeed!

    SWEET!
    IMO, building OTB is the biggest challenge for model builders because it all boils down to basics: perfect seams, perfect decals and building plumb and square. If you don't score 10s on the basics you can spend a kings ransom on aftermarket and you fail.

    Absolutely beautiful finish! The multiple shades of Alclad look great! Are the markings the kit decals? Because they look painted on, really a great job of decaling if they are.
