I want to post a few pics of my most recent aircraft models.  I build in 1/48 only and usually try to photograph them in natural light and surroundings when possible.  I've been a bit dormant recently though and haven't built a plane in three years I guess.  The last two, the A-6E and Hurricane, were both completed in that period after languishing in production "limbo" for a while.   All of them are done in either Model Master or Humbrol enamels with my old Paasche Model H.   Here are my last few finished aircraft builds:

Wow, if someone showed me those photos I'd have a hard time working out they were models! Very well done

Very nice looking models

Thank you all so much!  I'm glad you liked those birds; I sure have a bunch in my model stash that need to see the light of day.   The airport's been missing me!😉

Outdoor pictures are the best.  Natural light.  Great collection.  Fantastic workmanship.

Love the A6 and the F4F in particular. Just shows that a good model in a good picture can look real. 

 

If you've anymore please post those pictures.

Thank you Matt!  That's the ultimate compliment, and goal as well, isn't it?  Many thanks for the kind words!

Thank you so much!  That great natural light in a natural setting really helps sell the pics.  That and clever placement of the models to hide the flaws, lol😀

Thanks noel!  That's kind of you to say.

I do have pics of lot's of models, done over the years and some of old build just recently photographed.   But, I don't want to wear out my welcome!   

How about just two more WWII warbirds for now?

Well, the last day that I could use my Photobucket account was December 18.    It has been down since. 😢  Mine must be one of the last accounts that hasn't been restored yet since their big "power outage".   The last model that I posted here was my F-104 and the pics went down that very day.  But...The oddest thing about this is that in spite of the fact that none of my pics are now showing up (here or anywhere else on the 'net), there is one thread in which the photos still appear.  And that is this one.   I'm bumping it to see if they actually do show up when the thread is brought back to life.   Please bear with me as I try to keep my cool over the fact that PB dropped the ball bigtime. 😀

Yep! I just started this at the top and they're all still visible. Who knows with PB. I stopped using them after the big frig-up a few years ago.
