I love invasion stripes and the Mossie is by far the prettiest twin war machine to grace the sky. IMO

CF100, it's just a couple of different brands of aluminum or silver paint sprayed on the plastic covering, first scuffing it up a bit with a Scotchbrite pad. I drew on the panel lines first and then masked off various sections to get a patchwork effect. Black or brown artists' pastels, applied with a brush or Q-tip, were then applied here and there to furthur change the hue of some panels, accentuate lines or whatever. It's really easy to do- just time consuming. And tape consuming!
Don, may I add my congratulations to your Dad for the Mossie he's created- it's just beautiful!

Re: Warbird picture thread

Clearly we must petition to have that build thread moved to this forum?

Re: Warbird picture thread

I know Trevor, & he used to have one of my photos on the door of his trailer. Looks like he's doing one of these, which is a very photogenic plane.

Re: Warbird picture thread

Still in the finishing stages, this is my second Great Planes F-4 Phantom. First one is done in IAF markings, this one will be a Luftwaffe Test and Evaluation scheme. Lots and lots of cutting squares out of monokote. The Phantom graphic is hand cut from monokote as well.
