Damn cool!  :thumbsup:
+1 to what Dizzy said re the Yukikaze vibes.  :mellow:

What did you use to achieve the Have Glass finish?
Cheers,
Moritz


Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

By the way folks, the origin of the Kingsnake is Hushkit:

It's been fascinating watching what you have done with the Kingsnake, although I confess, the Zwilling was a step too far for me! I have been genuinely surprised at the interest the article and my artwork has created and hats off for the beautiful build.

Thanks, but I can only claim to have created the artwork. The actual concept belongs to a couple of very talented aerospace designers who put a great deal of thought inot the configuration. Being a part of that process was quite an eye opener on how to balance the inevitable compromises of mission, capability and achievabiity.

Beautiful work!   Just goes to prove gray jets don't have to be boring.

Couldn't of put it better  :thumbsup:

That finish really does have a "look" about it  :bow:

I'm with you both there.  Beautiful modelling, both the conversion and the paint job.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
