Guillows Series 800 - Stearman PT-17 by Creosotewind
CreosotewindBecause this is foam, the leading and trailing edges are thick. Photos of the real F-16 look like you could shave with those wings. Sanding process started.
CreosotewindThe foam pitting is fairly obvious in this photo as well.

Cleveland Airlines North American F-86 Sabre by poppy
poppyIt's as good as I can get it.
julinickIt's awesome poppy. When I did my B-25, I like the fact that some areas were not perfect but added some realism where these birds back then had a few "dings" here and there!!!
David DuckettLooks fine to me.

Guillows Series 400 - BF 109 by David Duckett
David DuckettAnd this is the one I'm using. The working title is The Honda at sunrise.
CreosotewindI thought it was canyon walls. Interesting transmutation.
CreosotewindDavid, are you familiar with Ed Mell, a painter who lives in the Valley? Some of your work reminds me of him.
David DuckettI don't know him. Any resemblance my work has to that of anyone else is purely coincidental. I try to stay away from other folks work when painting.

Scratch Built Solid Models by Creosotewind
CreosotewindNew project. A hanging display for the Arizona Military Museum. Luke AFB was one of the major training schools for F-16s in the country. The museum wanted to honor them by having one of their aircraft on show.
CreosotewindVery close to 1/12 scale. I will be adding a cockpit (ESCI/Italerie) and a pilot (scratch-built).
BriandKilbylooks fun! what's the wingspan?
CreosotewindAbout 33 7/8 inch. Length is just over 51 inches. Big enough for me to knock it around a bit as I move it around the room.

I was surprised with just minimal fuss the plastic cockpit fit in the airplane. Almost like they were made for each other.

Test fitting inside the cockpit. A lot of foam had to be cut away so the new cockpit would fit.
