Got this done and the pictures actually turned out really well in my opinion! 




























Q'pla!

Build pages here, pages 21-25. I just realized I never took any in progress shots of this one?! Oh well, I did talk about it at least:  http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,42778.330.html

Jolly good Brad.
 :thumbsup:

It's just struck me, wouldn't the NATO name for the Phantom be Fantom?  :unsure:

Fred

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Hell yeah, that was a good bit of advice, thanks! The other was just too "bright" and "clean." I like this much better.  I'm getting better at weathering, too... which is nice. Practice is good any time I can get it.  :D

TEST BED is back. Not a new plane but definitely a new scheme and colors.


Anyway, the plane with the new attire, we'll start with a "before" of how I had it painted last time:












This test was to settle on the proper colors to use on a Tu-4 Bull bomber for the Soviet GB.

I'm a full HALF A YEAR delinquent in updating this thread.  :o ;D

I keep meaning to do it... I keep saying I'm going to do it.. then I get lazy and put it off or forget outright....BUT... I remembered this time!  ;D ;D

Right... first up is my Shorts Tucano in 1/72. All hairy stick and acrylics. I did this as part of the 1st annual Rod Buchannan memorial group build on the Facebook Scale Modelers page.







Build here, pages 27-36: http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,42778.0.html


This thing whooped my butt up and down the block. I made repeated mistakes and did many processes over and over again. I stuck with it, however, and this has wound up being one of my favorite lil planes!  :laugh:

More soon...

Build for this one is here, pages 16, 17, 36, 37, 44, 45, 51, and probably a couple others (shelf of doom, I stopped working on it for months..): http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,42778.0.html

An F-84G in service to the Republic of Molossia.























Combo of spray paint and acyrlics brushed on. 1/72 scale, of course. It's the old Heller kit. Quite a nice kit!

Next up, a 1/72 B-29 by Airfix done up as a Sovite Tu-4 Bull in Cuban service. A gift from Kruschev to Castro. I call it "Castro-Force One."









All hairy stick and acrylics. All hand painted aside from the roundels.

This one was a lot of fun. A lot of work, too, though.  :o
