Post-war JV44 Clean-up

Recommended Posts

Did some work.......

 

One of the few shots of the freely standing model. Note the portside wing is an aluminium foil scratchbuild and will be CRUSHED at the end of this. (GULP!)

Panels on but not on. Adds to the effect I'm looking for.

Took me a while to figure out how to showcase the stunning red and white under side of the Papagei Staffel. You almost forget the truck is there!

I added a tree to effectively pin the model to the base. I've had instances in the past where aircraft models fall off and shatter and I'm constantly paranoid about it.LOL.

Extremely impressive work :clap2:

 

I especially like the foil wing and I am looing forward to seeing it crushed

Lovely figure work as well. I dabble in figures as well, and find that if I paint kit figures even if I dont plan to use them gives me a lot of free experience...

Thanks Thomas. 

 

I feel that way about figures too. I was recently in the Tamiya factory in Japan and saw some of Shep Paines work close-up. Virtually all his figures were kit figures so you're in good company. 

 

I'm wondering how to crush this wing too, TBH. Lol.

Did the crush last night. I had to be suitably tired not to care how it turned out. This morning it appears ok. Also initial weathering, the tree and just general busy work.

Excellent work! Really eye catching and colorful

 

Thanks Brian,

I try to imagine what it must be like to behold a bright red plane in the middle of the war and nothing really prepares you for that.

 

Regards.
