Sounds like this isn't one I should put on my "to get" list, haha! My F-104G is about killing my enthusiasm for this hobby.

Hi Fanch, I take my hat off to you sir. This is one of the best renditions of a Tomcat that I can remember seeing.

Your patience is obvious since the weathering is beautifully rendered. A very time consuming process I'd warrant.

The attention to detail is mouthwatering and every nuance of a used F-14 is captured. 

Very beautiful.

I don't know whether to be inspired to pick my 'Cat back up or deterred from re-starting because the standard these days is so stratospherically high.

 

Perhaps when the weather outside is better you'd consider taking some photos under natural sunlight please? I would love to see this in it's natural state with realistic contrast and shadows.

 

Cheers.

 

p.s. If you wish to add more images I think we'd all appreciate it, thanks

 

p.p.s I tried to send you a pm but a message says that you cannot receive pms. Is your inbox full?

Good Afternoon Fancherello,

 

WOWZER !  SO I must  have missed the ending of the WIP(Need to go and finish reading the end :wub: ) ......

I thoroughly enjoyed your TOMCAT build  which has to be MY All time FAVORITE .. your weathering and painting is just absolutely FANTASTIC.

The EXCEPTIONAL FLAWLESS detailing is AMAZING.Everything is PERFECTION in itself and if course TOMCAT is a Favorite of MINE  and I cannot stop drooling over it ! :wow::wub::bow:

Your tenacious way of building was such a pleasure and joyous to watch...:clap2:

your F-14 TOMCAT is STUNNING and simply PHENOMENAL WORK of Art. Setting highest standards for all to follow Fancherello.:thumbsup:

 

Photos are EXCELLENT  and IF you are sunny SoCal outdoor glamor photos would be appreciated but if you in throes of  winter weather then I can wait till later !!!:o

Fanch,

 

The end results are nothing short of amazing! The paint/weathering effects are about as realistic as I've ever seen; you are extremely talented with an airbrush. I especially like the depth created by the filtering of colors and how it all blends together. Another nice touch is how the darker anti-glare paint applied over the top of the nose cone is worn away to show the base fuselage color.....Awesome!
