Fantastic finish and detailing for any scale.

 

I especially like the tonal variation across the grey – what techniques did you use for that?

David

Great builds! What are the kill markings each of them carry?

 

Exactly what I was going to ask. These are both beautiful looking jets you have here Fishbone, simply beautiful.

Hey Dave, I spray different tones of grey and also white (both very diluted) with low pressure on different panels to create variation.

That's a superb Super Bug - well done!  The Tomcat is great too!!

 

What did you think of the Wolfpack flap set?

It's nice, but becareful the flaps might bend a little bit because of temperature factor.

Hi Fishbone,


Thanks for the advice. I wasn't sure if it was pre-shading or other. I'm still new to airbrushing, so thanks for the tip.

David

Amazing work! I am building the Revell 1/72 Superbug right now and would be over the moon to get even remotely close to your standard of finish!
