Thank you, but you're overreacting. The errors are there. Next time it will be better. But again, thank you for your comment.

Your HURRICANE  is fabulously done and IS STUNNING....

Very nice Hurricane indeed! And I do appreciate the absence of exaggerated weathering. ;-)

 

A display of excellent modelling skills.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

A lovely rendition of one of my all time favourites. Incidentally can you tell me the make of the jig seen in the photographs and how do you rate it?

What is that jig? I badly want one. Now if not sooner.

If I understand your query - surface is composed of several layers of paint, that it is not a continuous layer. This is done an airbruh. Then there are products of MIG, AMMO - streaking effect. Of course wash and matt varnish. The last is dirty of pigments. Abrasions are peeled to a silver base.

There seems to be a lot of interest in the jig that the model has been placed on. (last 2 photos of set).

JIG? Do you mean a stand? http://umm-usa.com/onlinestore/index.php?manufacturers_id=92

My is  homemade modifications.

Thanks Ales, that is what was being referred to. It's one of the oddities of the English language that can be confusing to non-native speakers (rest assured your English is so good that I checked your location before I realised why you were confused!) We do have a habit of using the same word to mean different things in alternate contexts. In this case a "jig" is a frame or stand used to aid assembly or construction. So the "jig" holds the parts of the model whilst glue or paint dries or to aid location of components in a complex construction. It is also a traditional dance!

 

Hope this helps

 

Oh and beautiful model!

Very nice build - like it. The weathering & painting is really convincing.

 

Cheers,

Michael

A really beautiful model. I love the paint scheme and the subtle weathering is very well done.
