  1. Thanks everyone. @AMB the F5 on the rudders are production numbers (F1, F2, F3...)when they are still in Vaught plant, it was removed when they were deliverded.
  2. Many thanks to everyone for the likes and reply. @Luis Alfonso, I print my own decals (Blue Diamond Decals) and with the help of the former pilot of this F-8, Gen Ming, I managed to pull this out.
  3. Hi, this is my recent finished model, 1/72 F-8E converted to H. I modified the nose cone and made it more straight and added the radar blister on the vertical fin. Used acrylics paints and added very subtle panel lines. Many thanks for looking.
  4. Hi, this is my recent build, a 1/72 F-8 Crusader from Esci. Decals are from Blue Diamond Decals. I modified the nose cone to make it more flat on the side by gently pinching it and sanded the curves to make it more straight, also added the radar blister on the vertical fin. I photographed it outside and using the sun as my light source to make it realistic then super imposed it to my photos of places which I took while flying. Thanks for looking.
  5. Thanks, but I can’t please everyone
  6. Thanks, I’m from Philippines but live in Birmingham.
  7. Hi, this is my recent build, Airfix 1/72 P-51D Mustang, painted with Alclad II Polished Aluminum and weathered with Tamiya's weather sets. Decals from Blue Diamond Decals. Thank you for looking.
  8. thanks guys for your comments. The plastic on this kit was so brittle that I snapped one of the rotor blade. In fact this is a second model the I build, the first was a disaster after dipping the tail boom in hot water to correct a warp but managed to melt it down and now looked like a sloppy sausage.
  9. This is my latest build. The kit is Airfix and the decals are made by me. Many thanks for looking and happy holidays.
  10. Printed and tested on a piece of toothpick... gentle comments guys.
  11. just like I've said, still in development stage. It will be printed on clear material and cut into circles. I will show the finished product soon.
  12. Yes I did, that is why I called it differently. But I'm not convince with the effect of their product...
  13. Hi, I have this idea for long time and managed to draw it in Photoshop few days. Gentle critique will be appreciated. Thanks for looking.
  14. I can help, give me the size you want and I'll send you a picture of it.
  15. Thanks for the kind words guys. Believe me, I just used half a mile of Tamiya tape. I was supposed to do the Slovakian camouflage pattern but my creative side took over and the markings is a ''what-if'' for Philiippine Airforce which I printed on clear decal paper. I know that Fujimi's Fulcrum has many inaccuracies but I'm more in to the camouflage pattern, not on the accuracy of the model and it serve as a test bed for future digital camo models. Here is the masking stage of the model.
  16. This is my Fujimi 1/72 Mig-29, painted the digital camo pattern using Tamiya tape and Hataka acrylics. Thanks for looking.
  17. I decided to depict a possible future fighter aircraft of Philippine AF. I've used the logo pf the 6th TFS (circle) and added a full body cobra to make it more modern looking fighter. I've used a laser printer to print the decals. Few more bits and pieces, she'll be ready for a photoshoot! Thanks for looking.
  18. Updates: Exhaust and anti glare panel now painted and panel shadows done. Also tried to apply a light filter so all the colors blends to each other. thanks for looking.
  19. Hi, this is my long overdue project (1/72 Fujimi Mig-29) which I shelved because of the complexity of the camouflage. Recently I said to myself, I can do this. I removed the previous masking and repaint the dark color first then re-masked it again. I took 2 hours each color to mask (6 hours now and running) and still need last color. Thanks for looking.
  20. I used Photoshop for my artworks. I used a big file and high dot per inch so I wont lose any details while manipulating the image. Always use layers for each color and for the font, don't rasterized it at it will lose details, just transform it to your size you want. Once you are finish with your artwork, don't flattened the layers, leave it as layers as it is easy to edit it. Always save it as PSD and not JPEG, again with JPEG your artwork will lose details. Enjoy editing.
