I admire the coordination of the color of the wing camouflage with the color of the grass on the base. Maybe it was luck, but it sure looks great. I also congratulate you on spectacular creation of a replica of an aircraft engine that has perfect color. I believe those rusty exhaust and oil stains correspond to a real machine. What an amazing creation.

Another brilliant outcome Mike.  Enjoyed this one.  Thanks for sharing.  

Gave up on the ladder idea?  Save it for the next.  

 

Troy. 

 

Thanks everyone - greatly appreciated.

 

Yes the ladder had to go.

The drift wires got in the way so I couldn't get the ladder with the mechanic close enough to the engine.
