That frontal aspect shot (last one) really looks the part. Great idea for a display.

Thanks chaps biggrin


Don't ever let Fidd in here now that i have posted my frame #2 wip, not a ruler or measurometer of any sort in sight, unless you count a dinner plate for circles as a technical tool.

Splashed out and bought a ruler, 79 cents biggrin The box will need some obvious trimming and a covering for the rear, i'll come up with something. A piece of brass tubing i have had laying around since the Warspite build to hold the model aloft which I'll paint it once i get the position of the plane worked out. All up with the A3 card, the foam mount board, ruler and printed sky pic i am out of pocket about 10 bucks.

Feeling pretty crafty though, brings back memories of making silly stuff with the kids..except the cat doesn't have something stuck to it, and i only glued my fingers yogether once. Getting better as i age apparently.

At the moment she can swivel on the rod so i can place it in many positions, need to get the angle right to capture the look.

That is going to be a really great display.

I also admire your off table tape storage system. smile

Really elegant way for the backdrop... light and "airy". You're getting great at this type of thing.

This is going to look great. I notice the prop and spinner are off, are you going to use prop blurs on it? (I can’t recommend them enough, they are very effective.)

Mucking around with a transparent prop idea, still some more practice until i get the right blade shape as well as get my mix and spraying right.

Not sold on it yet but it may work out. I need to invest in a circle cutter and hunt down some better plastic sheet, this piece came of some random packaging at home and is a bit thick. The prop will have to be darker as well i think, needs a drop of black.

Might look better when the spinner if fitted.

I do like how it looks though.

Keep up the good work.

Another vote for the blur. Loving the backdrop so far.

Sadly the prop idea did not pull through. The final version i did looked decent from front on but any other angle and it was just fairly...meh. It was the plastic i was using, i really struggled to find something hard but thin and clear enough and didn't streak when even looked at sideways. Idea filed for future reference smile The backdrop is similar i think, looks far better at a distance than blown up in camera shots, i did come up with a better idea for the support, less chunkier and more minimal basically, once again, filed. Still, it was a fun little project even if the end result didn't really match totally what i had in my head.


The visitor decided to make himself comfortable once again. The whole house and umpteen comfortable places to chill out..but none of them good enough apparently

Hope you liked the build, it was slightly long for something so basic and a few hurdles for such a small and fairly new kit, cannot wait for the 1/32 build smile Cheers all, appreciate all the kind words as always.

It doesn't seem to photograph well. I bet it looks great in the flesh. Super work as always.

I think it's the lighting, more the bulb types themselves. Depending on which light and where it is really affects the colours. My phone does this sneaky thing of reverting to HDR mode every update as well so i always have to check that.

I may make a new improved and larger photo box for the next build, the foam card was cheap as chips and large sized.
