Absolutely stunning build of a beast of an aircraft.  Would love to see one of those flying today.  Some kit to do in 1/48, the detail you've highlighted is fantastic.

 

Regards

Hello Seversky,

This is the topper of the month.

A museum piece from a master modeler.

Almost forget to mention your photographic skills.

Regards. Orion

Without a doubt, the very best B-58A build I have seen in any scale, and especially as everything I have read about the kit describes how poorly the parts fit. Very realistic metal finish, too- particularly the engine 'hot' sections! :worthy:

Just awestruck at the incredible work that went into this model! If I may ask, how did you manage such clean scribed panel lines? My god, those are some of the cleanest and sharpest scribed lines I have ever seen!

As I said before for one of your other builds this is a museum-quality model.

 

Have you thought of contacting various museums to ask if they are interested to add a few models to their static exhibitions of scale models?

thought, but there are routine problems ...

I am ready to donate my models to museums if they take care of transportation

Incredible scale model(s)!   The Hustler is just amazing; truly a work of scale modeling art.  And the photos of it with the TSR.2 are just the coolest!   Man, that is some spectacular work in any scale!  :worthy:

Just amazing work!! Well done! I must ask what tools did you use to scribe your panel lines? did you sand the raised panel lines down first?

 

I used a regular scriber Tamiya and firstly sanded the outside panel lines

Hi Igor. This is a museum-piece!  May I ask which paints were used to achieve the metal finish?  (I read the work-in-progress and could not find the type of metalizer paint). Thank you.

Nicely done again. Thank you for the reply. what sandpaper grit did you start with and then sand the whole model to before painting? the finish is amazing.
