    Here is Rob's Hawker Hunter, of course brought back into scale!




    Gotta say, this one turned out sweet. I did use rolled landing gear
    struts, and cut the outer main gear doors into multiple pieces to
    more accurately reflect the real plane.

    May I inquire at to what weight paper you used to make it and if it was white or a different base color? Looks pretty sweet :)

    Thanks for the kindness all,

    @yaniv - John got that question.

    @Chris - I use 67# white cardstock, and regular bond paper.
    I remove the joining tabs on all my models, and convert them
    to joining strips or butt joints. I print one model on cardstock,
    and one model on bond paper. The bond paper then becomes
    pre-colored joining strips. Ain't technology great!

    Have a good day ya'll

    Ray, you have treated us all to a extremely outstanding model...again.:)

    I always look forward to seeing what you've cooked up whenever I see you've posted a message...usually with a "1/144" in the title. I know, when I see that, clicking to the post will once again provide a beautiful example of your amazing skills in making small scale models. I just love them!

    Keep 'em coming!!

    Hi Ray,

    Fantastic job. Having just finished the Hunter I can only aspire to the standard you set and praise the quality of this little gem. Thanks for the tips....I feel another Hunter coming on...

    It's really a 1:33 hiding out as a 1:72


    Either you got real lucky on this one or you're actually getting good. Don't know how much of each on this one but that sure does look pretty. Must be a new filter for Photoshop the "make my ragged build look professional filter". Mind sharing the source of that one with us all?

    @ Jim and David, thank you, but it's hard to type when blushing..

    Now Gil, I've always been good! Just wish I could get your wingtip technique down. Still a bugger for me. And you know I can't reveal the source of the filter, gotta keep my trade secrets ya know!
