Russ nice nice job as usual. One question: was it difficult to open the engine bay?  Did you consider sprucing it up?  Best wishes!

Love it!  One of my favorite Navy Jets.  The US Army flew one for signals research!

fantastic work Russ, love it.  Can you give us a rundown on your photo setup.  Is the sky a backdrop, or have you used a photoshop layer?

 

Cheers

Thanks `28`, the engine bay is easy to open up but my effort at doing anything with it was mediocre at best. You do get a complete engine to go in the nacelles and the panels are separate. Glad you like it, Cheers

Cheers Bruce,

 I bought some wall posters off Amazon and glued them onto some cardboard, the `Concrete` base are come tiles I bought from B & Q bargain basket, sprayed with grey primer, sprinkled with sand and dirt and some water colour blobs here and there ( It`s all Troy Smith`s fault :smile: ) . Photo`s taken out side on the patio table when the weathers kind.

 Glad you like it. Thanks again, Russ

 

Also thanks to everyone for `likes` and very kind comments, Appreciated !

Hello Russ,

Another winner. Can you imagine the high standard of US Naval pilots to put this large aircraft on the deck of a carrier.

Striking diorama.

What a beauty! The model, the colour scheme, the finish I'm going to stop now.

But that is excellent.

Wow stunning. That camouflage looks a nightmare to do though. :clap:

Lovely work, I’m getting a headache just thinking about the amount of masking that must have required though!

Hi Goggsy, Thanks. No masking though, drawn on in pencil and coloured in with hairy stick. I do my modelling in the kitchen on the table so no spraying or airbrush on any of my efforts.

Thanks again, Russ
