 I’m very late to the party here, but just been through this from the start.

 

It’s all been said already, but this is a masterpiece of a model. Absolutely beautiful.

As requested...a quick recap of where the build stands whilst waiting for funds to become available for the Red paint and Clear Coat etc.

 

All of the bodywork is primed and prepped for paint/decals/clear.....

The wings as were.....

 

IMG-6932.jpg

 

The radiator pipes awaiting placement of the top panels...which will allow me to finish the cockpit/tub once in place...with the rivets painted for the rear wing end plates once done.....

 

IMG-6933.jpg

 

A couple of views of the main cowl...wheels...rear wing support...along with the selection of accessories for the final display etc. .....

 

IMG-6930.jpg

 

IMG-6931.jpg

 

Air hoses and fittings for the power tools.....

 

IMG-6934.jpg

 

And finally...the beast herself.....

I will hopefully be able to order the paint and clear at the beginning of next month...which...barring any issues with the plastic like the wings...will allow me to finally move this build forward.

 

Ron

 

to be continued............

This again shows that you will end up with a really fantastic model display. Hope you can get the paint soon and show us more.

Mr argent-neuf-cent-onze (*)  ,

 

Thank you for the wonderful photos of your stunning work. All those parts would make a great diorama.

 

(*) Your username sounds good in French, like a character from a James Bond movie 🙂

 

Sincerely

Thanks Pascal...the scene/diorama/final display is as yet in the planning stage...something along these lines might work...(without the figure).....

Sans certain body panels to allow detail work to be seen.

I love how you mange to control the tones in your work.  The bright red fire extinguisher and the white oil can should stick out like a sore thumb,  but somehow they just blend in to perfection, absolutely awe inspiring - Andy

It may be due to using oil paints for much of my work...that and my many years as a figure painter...which tends to train you to see and use colours differently to most modellers.

Whilst I also tend to acknowledge the 'scale effect' principles...I modulate them to suit a given subject/aspect of my pieces/builds.

For instance...if you look at the last picture I posted of an idea for a backdrop...ignoring colour correction aspects for an oldish photo...you can clearly see the effect a cold damp day has on the colours...especially the reds and whites.

It's these shifts in tonal values...hues and luminosity...that I try to replicate in my work.

Hope that makes sense Andy.

 

Cheers for comment...much appreciated :)

HI Ron, 

 

I really like your idea for the backdrop - it appears to be trackside, and comes equipped with an actual backdrop, or in this case building façade (ie you can build a convincing wall, and not an entire building!) - so when you shoot it, you don't need to filter out background clutter and can focus on the car! and, can include your various tools and so on - this is shaping up really well! 😀

 

 

Cheers

When I did my ‘generic racetrack’ background, this is as simple as painted sandpaper and 2 A4 printed pieces of paper for the background agip logos.

Have used sandpaper myself in the past...works well for a tarmac type surface 👍

 

I tend to prefer a 3D backdrop to a printed one...although a printed backdrop works better for creating distance when slightly out of focus.

With a 3D backdrop...you get much better and more natural shadows when photographing the subject IMHO.

 

Appreciate your input Nick :)

Yes agree, in this case though I was only printing banners which are flat in real life!
