  1. Glad to see updates from you Elmo! like usual, every piece is a masterpiece! damn! I wish I was half as good!...great show
  2. Should we spect another "redoing something episode" or you are almost ready to paint? even the things you don't like and re-do are outstanding pieces of work!!
  3. If you don't know Elmo, nobody will!!!! Haneto, thnx for sharing your awesome work! trully inspirational! definatly a learning experience!!
  4. Wow! when I started seeing your build I wanted to build one too!! but damn! after all the work you've done, I realized I could never even get a bit close to that! so I'll just keep watching!! great job and thnks for taking the time to explain!!!
  5. Everything was great until I layed the gloss cote down, most of the paint detail fade away or is barely visible, not bad but not the way it was, so I carried on. I used Werner´s Wings "operation Irene? decal sheet, and let me tell you they are great, top notch quality! I strongly recommend Floyd's decals!!! Still a long way to go, but the ride has been really nice!
  6. I painted most of the fuselage trying to imitate touch-ups and as many as possible tonal variation to give it a bit of depth to the paint job Hope you like it!
  7. Adding some paint to the Hawk, as said before, really hard (for me) "color" to work with and givi it a non toy look!!
  8. I'm pretty sure I would have added more color to all the cables you have scratched, but looking at your work I realize how clean and natural they look! great job as usual!
  9. It's been a long time ago that I ran out of words so I don't say anything, but keep following your builds and and holding my jaw everytime!
  10. Believe me, if I can do a decent job with this kit, anyone can! I wouln't call it unbuildable, it just needs a bit of work and lots of dry fitting. Actually this is one of the best kits I've had! I built the Venom and the Zulu and they were also awesome kits, those are the only ones I can speak of. As I said, if I can make them look decent, just imagine them in the hands of the real good modelers!!! So for unbuildable kits I guess they do ok! Glad you like my work! I wouldn't be able to explain my "technique" when it comes to painting, I s
  11. Since most of the interior is done, fuselage halves closure was next step. Beeing this a big kit a lot of dry fitting was necessary and a lot of problems were found, those needed to be addressed in order to get a nice fit and/or at least get the halves to touch each other. All the locating tabs had to be reworked in order to fit the way the were supossed to. I sanded a bit of the floor's sides and finally got a decent fit all over. the joint will need some make up work but I'm happy with the result Warpage worried me a bit, but I satrted glueing from the back and had zero
  12. More sub-asemblies Nose cowling with just paint and dry brushed This is just a test for the paint to come, I've never worked a whole black model, the only thing I know is that the few parts I painted black have always been hard for me! The seat texture was made this time with the same jeans tag but this time damped in thinner and then pressed against the plastic, and I think iworked as fine but faster!
  13. Glad you like it Oliver! my painting tries to emulate yours, even tho I get a thousand miles short, I´ve learnt from you never to paint a solid color and so far it's been working fine! still a lot to improve but I guess I'm on the right track! Thank you
