    FM Falcon

    Hi all, I'm currently building Fine Molds Millenium Falcon and whilst i've managed to find a multitude of photo's of the upper hull i can't find any decent shot's of the underside. I need these for weathering reference and it would be good if i could find some decent shots of the 32" prop model. Any help would be much appreciated, i will finish the upper hull today and post photo's later. Thanks, Sav.

    Target Tug Mossie

    Hi all, I've just noticed something that is purely coincidental. The painting was finished on Thursday the 16th. This is exactly 53 years to the day that TH992 crashed!! Sav.
  4. Hi Col, I must say that following your painting after just completing one my self, your style is, to my mind, very odd. You seem to start on one area and then whoosh, off to somewhere else where the colours and tones are totally different. I'm not knocking you for this as it seems to work very well for you. Totally different styles on similar projects, brilliant to watch. Sav.

    Hello Pete, Thanks for the kind words. Up next is a comission for my local fire station. Thay have just recieved a brand new fire engine and appear to be really proud of it!! After that i'm thinking Spitfire. I'd like to do something a bit different and have already done a bit of home work. Sav.
  7. Hi Pete, This is looking good, i'll be to watch the progress on this for sure. Sav.
  8. Wow, if i were to try this, there would black smudgy finger prints all over it. Stunning.

    March 16th 1954 Pilot, Flt Sgt Ron Healey and Cpl Gavin Law, take Target Tug Mosquito TH992 call sign Norman out on it's last flight. Later that day this aircraft was written off after a crash landing on the beach at Anrum.

    Hi Pete, Thanks for your comments. I have picture that was lent to me by Pete Law the winch op on this A/C. It shows the aircraft after the crash and is taken form the rear. The fuselage broke in two just aft of the wings but clearly shows the letter N sitting quite high in relation to the roundel. I agree it does look very odd and the temptation to line it up was quite strong! This photo is the only ref i had as to the placement of marking's, in fact it's been easier to paint than it has to find any reference at all. The clouds were left as they are because it was really difficult to know when to stop while aircraft itself was just a white shape in the middle. The plan was to go back to them after the Mossie was painted in,a bit arse about face i know, but planned for none the less. I think you are right though and i'll see what i can do with it. Cheers, Sav.

    Right, HONEST opinion's required!! The aircraft in my mind is ok, it's the markings i'm not sure of. This was always going to be my downfall on this project. I look at and think, 'Yeah thats ok' and then i look again and, well, i'm not so sure. There are no decent photo's of this aircraft in existance, that i know of. So i really don't have anything to go on. So go ahead and say what you think, cos i really don't know. Sav. PS The port wing roundel is on it's twenteenth go at getting it right, so will be applied when i'm happy with it, or not.......!!!!!!!

    Hi Col, As you've probably guessed i'm huge aircraft fan, but i've never really got around to painting them. A couple of years ago i was approached by a friends wife to do a painting for her dad. He worked in the aircraft industry before he retired, and after seeing a painting of a Bald Eagle i did for a wedding present for them asked if painted aircraft. He wanted a painting of a Lockheed Constellation in a TWA livery. Unfortuanately i have no photo's of the painting. It was this got got me to use FS2004 as a good starting point for reference. You find the plane you want to paint, take it up for a spin, pause the sim and bingo, you have a 3D 'photo' which can viewed from any angle. Sav.

    Moving on (had the day off so got loads done) the cockpit is in. It was important to get winch operator looking out of the cockpit, the person who the painting is for would have sat in this position. So when he views the painting he will effectively see himself, if you know what i mean? The port wing is blocked in and after a few tweaks will be ready for detailing. I am waiting on some information as regards some of the stencil data, also on the tailplane guard wire. This week should see the painting complete. Sorry about the fuzzy photo, Sav.
