That looks superb! Also, I love the background for the photo, how is it made? Is the wall behind it a picture?

Thanks AH: 

 The revetment wall is from a couple of Noy`s Minatures Vietnam back drops, I just cut them off and stuck them on some plastic sheet. the sky is just the top half of a wall poster pasted onto some cardboard.

Cheers Russ

I love Skyraiders too! Really beautiful airbrushing. Turned out very nice.

Thanks Hobo,

  Really glad you like it. I can`t take any honours for airbrushing though, it`s `hairy sticked` as usual.

Cheers Russ

Very nice indeed. I can understand your "thing" for Skyraiders. I've built four in the distant past, and currently have six in the stash!

Wow! How did you create a soft feathered edge with the camoflage?

I did it with a small, chopped off, stiff, synthetic brush and applied paint, not quite drybrushed with a dabbing/stippling action. Hope that makes sense.

I'm always amazed by your brush work Russ.   Your results with a brush are better than my attempts with the airbrush.

Truly amazing result. Saw a documentary about the Skyraider recently - now I have a lot of respect for them.

Love this Russ,..... the camouflage scheme is so cool to begin with but you`ve done a superb job as usual and the result is a fantastic model yet again mate,

Cheers

Wow, that's a beast. I can see a lot of work has gone into it. It's certainly 'loaded for bear'.👍

Certainly agree! Masterfully done!
