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!!!

    J-3 in water

    One of the things I like to do is photograph my models, take the image an place it in a "real world" environment using either Photoshop or Bryce, sometimes both.

    Here is my FG J-3 with pontoons sitting on a table.

    And here it is 'sitting' in the water using Bryce software.

    Does that Delta 7 have a interior? Just wondering. Looks great!! I really liked that move "Astronaut Farmer".

    No, the Mercury models don't have the interior as far as I know. His Gemini series, at least one of them does have the interior....

    Swampfoxx,

    All I can say is "WOW!". You did some great work on those models!

    Swampfox, the reality is that I think you being a lot more to the models than you may nor may not realize. I have seen people build the same ones and they look like they rolled in a rough landing! :)

    Thanks Zathros, I know that I don't venture too far from the FG models and I been given some flak over it.

    I've also seen a lot of comments about how poorly they are designed and that they don't go together right....... I don't get it, maybe my standards are set too low for some of the "highbrows" that show up in these forums. But I think that if you take the time and try to do the best you can with even the more basic designs, you can build a decent model from a FG kit.

    I wonder if they are as good as the think they are if they can't even build a "simple" FG design.

    I'll just keep doing what I like to do and if others are inspired, great. If not, that's fine too.

    Send me you email address in a P.M., and I'll send you a FREE model that will probably have you never spend a dime on a model again. It is not pirated either. Homey don't play dat! Also, check out the FREE ESKA Ekranoplan in our Downloads Section. It's just plane rare and you'll only get it here! :)

    Totally love them all. You have a great taste of subject choice. I really love those Golden era planes.

    Hello swampfoxx,

    seeing the polish or german tradition of papermodeling, models with a lot of parts and highly detailed, it's a great joy to see your models and dioramas which have a great and intensive mood.

    I hope you understand my poor english and what I meant.

    Sincerely
    peaceglue
