Stop taking photo's of real aircraft and then saying its a model, thats cheating... Oh, wait... It is a model!

Anyone know a good cross stitch forum, i just gave up modelling!

Truly amazing!

I'm a newer member and just saw this! AMAZING!! I particularly like the first and the sunset photos! I also like the striped effect from burnishing the centers of the panels. Very prototypical!  Did you use the cockpits and intakes from Lone Star Models? I have the cockpit set but may spring for the intakes and exhausts as well because my next B-58 will probably be my last one.

My guess was that he did use the Lone Star cockpit, but not 100% sure. Paul was famous for his amazing brush painting skills and this model was done with classic Rub'n'Buff paste.

Sadly, Paul passed away a while ago, a great talent and a great loss.

- Hi Josh

- Paul was a good friend of mine and I knew him rather well.He was a true artist,using only brushes and his fingers and old brushes for the Rub'n Buff......He also used oil paint to obtain some particular effects and made large use of Tamiya weathering sets, he was a good photographer too. I don't think he ever used any AM transkits, I'm almost sure he didn't, his cockpits were pieces of jewelry.

- Thank you for digging out his model opening the way for remembrance of this good guy who was my friend ......

 -. He posted on BM around the years 2012/2013 .I think you may easily find some of his stunning models

Wow.  That is really something special.  My first thought was that photos 1 and 2 were the real thing that you'd based your build on.  A really superb natural metal finish and great photography.  If only I could get my EE Lightning's finishes like this, sob.
