RAM Mask set for LS F-35A

Recommended Posts

My set arrived this morning , and after spending some time looking them over , its obvious that it's going to be impossible to build an accurate F-35 without the set , simply a necessity .. brilliant , and thanks

Hey ColinR!

Actually, couple of years ago, F's are my Fav's - a fellow member here, showed me how it can be done without a pre-designed masking set: 

I thought and told him that it was unnecessary hassle and yet - he did it. Quite nicely actually.

However, I believe that there are very few with that sort of patience that will be able to cope with it by their own. It takes times and a lot of your nerves.

No wonder why this and our 48th scale sets for MENG are so loved.

By the way designing that mask set is done in a similar way like masking by yourself. A standard project takes X-days for completion. F-35s took 6 times X for happening.

It was awful experience. Hopefully it worth it.

That's insane. 

I 'm sure I would have sent that kit flying a dozen time trying to do the same

 

Usually when modeller try to do this it ends up with so so result because of the fit of moving parts. But not from Milan.

The model is so nice and tidy in any chosen configuration. It's just modelling in the 4th dimension

 

Ultimately I fail to see the point of going through all that pain but for the technical challenges of simply doing it with such a great result

 

Congrats Milan. You're an alien :)

He is very talented young fella! What is really important is that it seems that all this happens with an ease when it comes down to Milan.

 

In general I too fail to see the point in whatever moving parts in a model. Especially tanks with moving tracks and active suspension. This is a scale model and its essence is to stay in one place like a painting. I cannot imagine a painting that you can move and change constantly. But it is a matter of perception. Milan's Harrier for example is 3 built models into one - with all the three modes. I would prefer to build three different kits, bit that's me. To each his own I guess.

I would ask Kevin to do it. Plus this in case anyone missed it. Milan shows his abilities here very clearly:

 

Even though this isn't his most devoted work, it becomes clear how far he can take a model. I can only imagine his work on a F-35B in 32nd scale. His favorite airplane with more than one options to be made movable.
