What a beautiful bird! Brilliant work. Well done man!

 

One comment on one detail if I may - whouldn't the tyres be dusty on their contact surface on that kind of ground? Looks a bit odd to my eye like this. Not trying to split hairs, just an observation.

 

Again, beautiful model!

 

Best,

Nikola

Thanks. When the final base is done, I'll use the same dust on the wheels to make it consistent.

Each time Miloslav gives us a new realistic master piece. I would like to know how metal appears at the root of wings because mrp paints resist to chipping fluid.... Thank you

Miroslav, sorry  but blue borders of the HGW US insigna seems "flashy" on screen.

I know this color depends on date (red.... mixed blue.... insigna blue).

I saw this following colorized photo on net.

Is HGW sure of its choice ?

It's just a question, great work + perfect weathering = incredible master piece. one more !

Not a nitpic - just a question . . . 

 

What sources informed the choice of an aluminum prop hub?

 

Asking because I want to do the same subject in 1:48.

The problem is the printer. The blue edges are more pronounced, but it distorts the photo a lot. It is necessary to adjust them a bit with a filter.

In the photo, the center is lighter than the propeller blades. That's why I chose the silver color.
