  3. This build rocks on so many levels, great job! So this might be kind of a weird question, but would you mind if I made a painting based off this build? Its been a while since I painted an aviation subject and this build really inspired me to get back to it. PM me if you have any questions.
  4. I saw that, but for some reason, I'm skeptical about something that I've only seen for sell on eBay.
  5. Is it just me or do these seats look a lot like Boba Fett?
  6. Awesome work! How can I get a copy of this?
  7. I can’t wait for the fyre festival style documentaries to come out about the AMK Tomcat.
  8. Awesome work! I really dig that the green and blue!
  9. There are no words to describe the quality of your work. Fantastic job!
  10. Thanks dudes! I really appreciate all the comments. JackMan - I weathered it in several layers over several sessions. The first thing I did was black base the gull grey. Then I used raw umber, burnt sienna, and mars black oil paints mixed in different combinations and thinned down and to a pretty watery consistency then built up layers by stippling with a stiff natural hair brush and blended out with a soft sponge with a little bit more thinner on it. Then once the oil paint fully cured after a few days I spot painted with acrylics. Be sure to let your oils fully dry before applying the acrylic since they dry at different speeds and can ruin your finish. Then I repeated the process until I had something that looked good to my eye. The key is to be subtle and work slowly. Navy jets don't get dirty in a day so it makes sense to me that the same should happen with a model. It's something that takes practice. Also references are just as an important tool as your paints. They set the guidelines for what you want to accomplish. It also helps that was I an art major with a focus on painting. -Xavi
