  1. This all started with a question about how to make a prop look like it's spinning. I mentioned that the technique I use is to make a brass bush and close fitting rod instead of the usual plastic shaft/poly cap kit arrangement and spin it with an aibrush to photograph. So here is my attempt at replicating a photo I took in Duxford in 2010 in model form. The only photoshoppery is to remove the aircraft from the original photo so I can use it as a backdrop, and about 100 pixels worth of editing on the far wingtip to remove the steel rod that mounts the model into the photo. Here's the original and heres my attempt at it:- My main cock-up is that the kit radiator cowls are moulded open and I only now spotted this. Also my panel line are far too heavy, otherwise quite pleased with it. It was an interesting exercise using old fashioned photography rather than photoshop. In true movie tradition, I've only 'half built the model' as well. I had to scratch most of the decals so I only bothered with the ones you can see. Thanks for looking Nick
