Tamiya P-51D Mustang, Miss Helen

Recommended Posts

I don't know how I managed to miss this one Guy but its really superb.

Its really nice to see a nmf weathered.

Personally I prefer the "in service" look and you have captured it beautifully.

Also good to see you are a fan of pastels and chalks etc like me. The easy removal if you go over the top makes things so much simpler.

I don't know why you posted pictures of the real thing sitting on an airfield though.

The WW2 photo of it kinda gives the game away! :evil_laugh:

 

Lovely stuff!

Those outdoor shots are magnificent Guy! Amazing realism.

Thanks Kev, glad you like them. I think I have as much fun snapping the finished model as I do building it.

Hi Phil, great to see you mate. How've you been?

Glad you like the Mustang. It was an absolute gem to build and I had a blast. Such a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

I've used pastels alot for final weathering. As you say, easy to work with and easy to remove if it all goes pear-shaped plus you can buy almost any shade in any colour if you look hard enough.

 

 

She looks even better outdoors Guy! I wouldn't have thought you could make this one any better, but the natural light photos are very realistic.

Hi Frank, thanks for the kind words my friend, much appreciated.

I love taking photos under natural lighting. Strong overhead sunshine helps the models look more realistic when posed in front of a backdrop. I'm forever striving for that illusive "perfect" snap. It's great fun trying.

 

With all of my playing around in PS I still have n't captured the look of an old photo the way >>this site<< does.

Simply upload the image you want ageing and presto.......

Cheers,
