Damn that looks just like the real thing! Brain had to do a couple of double takes on the pics. Unbelievable! What a great job on the finish! :woot.gif:

Peter does the BEST natural metal finishes of anyone I've ever seen. I wish I could do foil finishes but I'm too chicken sh... to try. And his photography is so good you think you're looking at the real deal. Crazy good! :thumbsup:/>/>

Like Drifterdon said. The man is a foiling Ace! I love the idea, but frankly haven't got the nerve or anything like it. Fortunately there is a stack of talent here that I can look at instead!

I agree with everyone's assessments above. His foiling results are the closest thing that, to my eye, look like the real aircraft. I've attempted foiling before and I can see how it has some amazing potential but I just need more practice to get it to look really nice. I need to work on my compound curves and avoiding the dreaded wrinkles. (That last sentence made me sound like a Kardashian.) If I could have just ONE plane foiled to the point where it looks like Peter Doll's models, then I can die a happy man.

PS. Peter, it you're reading this, I hope you received the e-mail I sent you through ARC.

Beautiful beyond words to describe it. That foil finish looks so realistic.

Thank you so much guys for your very kind words you've found on my Sabre Dog model. They really make me happy. If you can say that the model comes close to the original, that's the greatest compliment you can get. Thanks again and happy modeling.

Greetings from Germany !

Hi Dutch,

another silver bird is on the work bench at the moment and will be shown on ARC as soon as it is finished. I'll try to enlarge the number of pictures. It will be a highly polished USAFE F-86 F during a gummery meet in the fifties. Stay tuned !

Cheers

Pete

I only want to let you know that I've recently started to publish pictures of aluminium plated models on ARC Facebook and the size of the pictures is  fantastic. You can see there much more details now. Have a look !

 

Cheers

Pete
