1/72 Curtiss SB2C-4 Helldiver, Academy+BIG ED


Recommended Posts

Hi Fuad,

 

what a beautiful Helldiver. The Big Ed makes the difference, along with your virtuosity, of course.

Which decals have you used for this scheme?

 

Congratulations

JR

Hi! Main markings made by stencils, but other just from box.

And you had no problem with the Academy decals?

Hi Fuad! :D

 

I must that your models never cease to amaze me - not only are they very well built, but they are also very well presented! :goodjob:

 

When I grow up I want to build models like you :D

 

.....wait a minute....I AM grown up - I'm sure 55 years of age qualifies as grown up, doesn't it! :hmmm:

 

I better start some models! ;)

 

Cheers :bye:

Academic decal is not decal - it's linoleum, no chemistry works on them. Therefore, I did not use large decals. But small as that else it is possible to use.

This is a beautiful model, its a little piece of art!!

Academy decals are a nightmare in part, i know, but they are learning, use a lot cartograf decals now...

Fuad, 

 

Absolute quality work as always, one of your best I think, the level of detail you have crammed in with the photo-etch is superb!

I'm doing this exact same kit, same markings in the 'Radial Engines Rock' group build Fuad, and it will be no where near as good as this!!!

 

:goodjob:

Brilliant!

 

Looks absolutely amazing 

 

One thing I did notice was it looks like the gear doors are not weathered in the same way as the underside of the aircraft?

 

They are quite a clean stark white.... or is that just how the photos turned out?

 

Cheers

Fuad,

I just hate it when you post your models on here.

Why? 

Because you make what I build look like blocks of wood (badly carved into poor representations of what are supposed to be aircraft).

You are an outstanding master of modelling.  Just how do you do it?  I'm deeply envious of your skills.

Excuse me while I just go a whimper in a corner ...............

Yes you are right. I did not allocate niches and chassis racks. Because they are sufficiently embossed and it seemed to me that their selection would be too contrasting.

Hello Fuad,

Master Modeler. The AC looks exactly like the real example would have looked. The weathering is outstanding.
