1. Ladies & gentlemen, I would like to announce that there is a new photo gallery section. You can create your own personal photo gallery (to include setting up your own albums). You can even post videos. You can also post and share photos in the galleries of others (if that person allows such), as well . ENJOY!!!

    Looking at Mr. Bizer designs I decided to have a go at doing one myself.
    Having solved the problem with nose-cones and giving models a "cartoonish" look he inspired me to start this project.

    I'm starting with these drawings :

    After some copy-paste and some drawing in paint :

    The first results :

    This is what I have so far, I still have to "fine-tune" some parts and then start on painting the model.

    This is what I have in mind :

    It's a Gatekeeper at Gilze-Rijen (Netherlands), although it has the number K-3066 it is original the K-3003.
    Having seen these planes a lot as a kid it is my favorite and there are not so much models around.

    I'm going to have a busy weekend so updates will follow after...:thumb:

    Thanks Dragos !

    I've been following you guys silently for some time now... sign1

    I love what Paragon does and I also have seen your home-page :thumb:

    Buying new cartridges for my printer broke the silense and got me back in bussiness !

    (btw, building paragons f-86 sabre right now :twisted: )

    O, and I'll be sure to make a uncoloured version for you so you can paint it anyway you like ! :mrgreen:

    Yes, it will be a free model and I will include a white version.
    I'm planning on starting a website for my models, but I have to get into that...

    Ok, the weekend is over so it's back to work !

    Step 1:

    I rotated the sideview in order to connect it with the topview :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Step 2 :

    The intakes, copied from the sideview :

    [​IMG]

    Step 3:

    The wings, the most easy part I guess :

    [​IMG]

    Step 4:

    "Cleaning" the parts panel lines, the picture on the right is the bottomview and will only be used a reference for the panel lines

    Triop,

    Maybe you could separate the windshield-cockpit and fuselage top extension from the lower-main fuselage and give the former part a more round shape to achieve even better result in realism for the final model. Just a suggestion....

    I've been thinking about it, and I'm working on it :

    [​IMG]

    Don't know what to do about it yet....

    I've been building test version #4 today...and it "crashed" during the photo session ........wall1 :cry:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The parts almost fits perfect now and the coloring needs some changes.

    [​IMG]

    Btw, the photo session was a complete disaster :

    I don't have more time this week, so I think the next update will be in/after the weekend.

    (............did anybody noticed that the color-scheme on the original photo is inverted ????....................:mrgreen:

    Ok, next update :

    I've made some changes in the model and made a different version.
    All I need to do now is re-draw the nosegear and then it is ready for upload.
    (I hope to do that before friday) :mrgreen:

    With Triop's permission I have re-coloured his F-5 in line with the Swiss Air Force "Patrouille Suisse".

    Simple colour design but very effective.

    DSCF1793.jpg

    DSCF1794.jpg

    DSCF1792.jpg

    I have kept the detail very very small and only used 4 colours, red, white, blue and grey.

    I have made some more adjustments since this build which should improve the back end.

    Cheers JTF
