I'm a real fan of Mr. Jean-Luc's modelling style

That's a really great model.

Only a question: How did you do this strange chipping in the tail

Beautiful work, what materials were used for the base? looks like the pre fab they used to use for a runway?

Hi all,

Sorry for the late rely...

For the paint chippings, that's what I wrote in the feature:
"Final touch was to do some micro paint chipping with a triple 0 paint brush. These were done in lighter shades of each camouflage colors (light grey, dark grey and green). The effect on the model isn't very visible from a certain distance but when you a close it is noticeable. "

The base are ready to use display bases available from Mark58

Salut Jean-Luc,
it was more random that I found the article of this wonderful model. I made this morning a short visit in Heavy Plastic and found the Link by Edu`s T-33 work.
Your paintjob is worthy to be called masterpeace! The Weathering is great. I like particularly the little colour fadings at the panellines.
Lot of details with enourmous attention to the real machines.
Beau boulot et chapeau

Hi Dirk,

Thanks for the kind words... I think Edouard is doing the real masterpiece though!

This reminds me I have to check what he is doing!
