Typhoon Crash 75% complete
Posted by duckman on Saturday, March 04, 2017 1:09 AM
Hey all,
During the past summer I drove past a garage sale and spotted a healthy supply of kits!
 
All of them were old Monogram kits ranging from the F-105 wild weasel, Av8a Harrier and Hawker Typhoon. Needless to say I bought the lot and walked away with 8 kits for a cool twenty dollars!
 
I felt it would be great to improve my airbrushing and weathering skills, as I worked through the kits eventually with the Typhoon remaining I thought it could become a great piece for a diorama.
 

 

So this is the second diorama that I have done taken advice from fellow forum members to make the scene more interesting and with help from all of you and Luke Towan - Boulder Creek Railroad - YouTube! I've come up with this!

I like it. Well developed story. One thing I would suggest for your next one is, where you have the wing tip torn up sand the edges for a thinner more scale appearance. You may also consider having some cables in there from the flap or aeleron actuators(terminology may not be correct) that got mangled.

That looks great!  My only "bugaboo " would be the color of the torn up dirt/mud appears a bit too orange...but, like I said, that looks great!
