haven't built papermodel aircraft a long long time...........
Good to see you again, Yuki!
Is this a scratch build, one you designed yourself?
If a kit, can you tell us which one?
Looking forward to seeing more.
this is hobby model 1/33 tu-160 model
but I change the scale to 1/72 to match other model aircraft i built,
and the other side this model is very simple for 1/33 ,
so i change to 1/72 and rebuilt more part
Nice work scaling down the Blackjack. Were the engines scratch built? I don't remember seeing the blades in my kit, but its under a ton of junk (spring house cleaning and rearranging things) and temporarily lost.
In any case, it should be a nice model when completed. I can't wait to see it.
Nice work, but what is the spray paint lines all about?
NYC Irish, it seems to me a plastic modeller technique. It's used to stress the panel lines. In plastic models, panel lines are usually engraved. If, prior to paint the entire model with the final color, you follow each panel line with another colour (metal in this case, but it could also black, for example), the following overall painting will be much less "flat" and more real life-like, expecially if you paint with airbrush and don't completely cover the underneath colour.
Correct, in the "other world", they are calling it pre-shading the panel lines. In the olden days, you would use a thinned paint wash to accent the lines. As techniques progressed, chalks came into play. Now, pre shading the all the rage.

Maybe call them plasties?
tip for your experience..............
I feel a very big passion in your work and your pics !! So I want to give you a tip:
glue the formers on cardboard of about 0.5 or 1mm thickness before assembling.
That makes your framework more solid.
For example I show you an image of my F-117, the framework was very complex and impossible without reinforcing by cardboard, have a look:
