Now that is rather special. A lot of us must have seen Aircraft in a similar condition over the years. Spot on!

Yes that is very nice and very different.. 👌 I've always fancied doing a similar thing myself with the Jet Provost horse Jump at RAF Halton. I think it's even more overgrown than this now.

As I thought that it would be, that is generally very well executed. You can be quite proud of that. One question, though: who's been keeping the tyres inflated? 😉 I would have expected them all to be flat and degraded by now.

Not necessarily so , case in point is the remains of a Lancastrian which vanished in the late 40s after crashing into a mountain only for the remains to be found decades  later , the tyres still had air in them  😲

I was going to question the red oxide primer, but having seen the photo of "the real thing" I will shut up!

Lovely work - must have been fun to really be able to go to town on the weathering.

Cheers,

Nick.

Unusual diorama and very effective - very nice to see!. Top up the oil and clean the canopy and it'll be airworthy again!!

 

Excellent weathering and a great subject.

 

Cheers, Andy
