Revell 1/144 Ekranoplan A-90

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the nice comments guys, it has been an enjoyable build, something different....pabbi, the water is Vallego acrylic Water effects, Atlantic blue, it is just stippled,on allowed to dry and then dry brushed white to bring out the detail. It looks far better on glass or perspex with green on the other side to add depth. I have another base on the go at the moment with a larger 'water' area and that is using perspex as a base........Smudge

Bloody hell, you don't hang about do you?! That looks fantastic, and a very dynamic display as has been said by others.

The A-90 is now on it's display base that is a cheap Wilkinsons picture frame with acrylic "glass".

It has two aircraft electrical pins holding it up , but I removed them digitally (if that's the right word?) in the last picture. If you look at the last one in post #12 you can see them...Thanks for the "awesome" I appreciate it..................Smudge

Hard to believe it's real, looks more like somerhing Gerry Anderson made up.

Lovely build. Also going on my every growing "must build" list.

That's one seriously strange looking aircraft! Modeled wonderfully well though and the water effect is stunning.

Sublime. I love how rich you've made the water, it's a great foil for the grey.
