  1. Glen, I think you have really nailed it, the balance of the various shades is just right. The sculpture is a great likeness and the only area that lets it down (slightly) is that the eyes look slightly more startled than smouldering (not anything to do with your skills), but criticism that is only in a direct comparison with he reference picture, Luv it! Pappy
  2. G'day Glen, Lovely work and what a great idea to paint in greyscale in keeping with the movie theme.I am curious to know what colour(s) you used for the greyscale flesh tones. It is a very washed out colour but still slightly warmer shade than white? cheers, Pappy
  3. Great work BmB, Now get on with it and do the other ones, cheers, Pappy
  4. Lovely and well deserved silver. About the only thing missing are the pitot/static probe covers and a static lead, these would have been added almost as soon as the jet shut down cheers, Pappy
  5. I think that he feet look too small Pappy
  6. Happy as a pig in er, whatever it is that pigs wallow in! Thanks Dennis, I had a blast, cheers, Papppy
  7. G'day people, Unfortunately I won't be able to finish in time. I would like to thank the mods for a great GB. No need to feel bad for me though, I managed to get very close to the real things yesterday, Plus lots of other great stuff, cheers, Pappy
  8. G'day people, I managed to squeeze in some plastic time today. I have started to add the dark blue The 65th used a very tight soft edge which in 1/72 would be difficult to replicate freehand (for me anyway) so I am using the worms method. I was able to do the wraparound section on the nose Some minor overspray but otherwise happy, but I am less happy with this section which will need re-doing The decal sheet diagram is a little small and so it makes picking out the various 'landmarks' a little tricky but still, no excuses, a poor tradesman and all that. I will keep plodding away until I head off but this will not make the deadline unfortunately, cheers, Pappy
  9. Well, it does not look like your first time 1/48 kit, looking forward to the finished kit. PE belts can look excellent, it is one of the applications which really suits PE but using PE is not always easy. Good luck with your next attempt in case you want to try cheers, Pappy
  10. G'day Rich, Very tidy work so far. I am a little curious though why you chose to use the Hasegawa pod (which you say is not the best) when you have at least three resin pods to choose from? cheers, Pappy
  11. Very tidy work Ernest, I especially like your decals, they have been applied perfectly, cheers, Pappy
  12. Steve is correct, the combiner glass is actually clear. The green look is fromthe reflected graphics when operating. It can also partially reflect the HUD lens itself when seen from some angles so you may get a partial disc. Painting the lens clear green is not accurate for a HUD in OFF mode, cheers, Pappy
