This is my Mongram 1/48 Hustler. This aircraft reresents jet from the 305th BW at Bunker Hill AFB. I used Lone Star intakes and exhaust, Fisher Elevons and Mike Grant decals that went on very nice. I used Alclad II Paints and model master Metalizers.Not an easy kit,the worst part was putting on the tail. My goal was to achieve the look of an aircraft sitting alert, not a polished trophy winner.

Oh Crumbs! You have pulled a corker there.

Not only have you re-created some very well known photos but you have made them indistinguishable from the real thing.

Well done sir,an absolute pearler of a job.

11/10.

Just superb, fantastic. Words fail to describe the incredible job you've done. So in addition to chairing the NMF subcommittee, I assume you will also do the same for the Photoshop working group?

Cheers,

Bill

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your kind words. I must say though no photoshop was used. Strait shots, just with a great back ground for aircraft pics.

Superb build and finish, and as others have said, those are incredibly realistic pictures: the blending of the model 's base into the background is seamless.

Completely gobsmacked. I don't think I have ever seen a model look so much like the real thing. I really cannot compliment you enough. :worthy:

By the way, what did you use for the base?
