What a fake!!!!

 

Those are photos of a REAL A-7 in flight - and you have just photoshopped in the arm of the stand.......:whistle:

 

Seriously though - stunning build, fantastic paint job and incredible photography :worship:  :worship:

 

I'm off to take up a different hobby....

Like I said before, if there wasn't an acrylic rod in the shot, I'd swear it was the real deal. This is a stellar piece of work Red Dog and you should be very proud of the end result. You attention to all the details really show thru in the pics.

Thank you again Steve en Hooker

 

Glad you noticed the review Maurizio :)

some guys said that the antifire coating on the Mk-82s were a bit rough, i am an adept of increased détail in scale so i'm perfectly happy with the bombs and i look forward to using your work again in my future builds

Yes, it's partly true, I've been influenced by some images where it looks like that, maybe I'll do another softer or even slick version.

This is just a great display. If you photoshop out the stand we would all believe you took photos of a real A-7 :thumbsup::thumbsup:

 

I especially like the weathering on the intake. I guess we all forget that area gets dirty and should ot be pristine white. Got to remember that now after seeing yours.

That is the most realistic model I think that I've ever seen!

 

Outstanding work Red Dog,..if you photoshopped the support out of the first pic, that would easily pass for the real deal.

 

Absolutetly brilliant!

 

Cheer's,

Jeff.
