The forum seems a little slow, so I thought I'd post this. Not looking for kudos. Just filling time, giving you something to look at, and giving me something different to do.

I have posted on this project before, but I do not think I posted this image with the prop in motion. The plane is photoshopped onto the background but for the most part, the plane is as I photographed it. I used software filters for effect and to enhance, but that is about it. Oh-- in this image I manipulated the prop for motion. The image posted previously was with the plane in formation and the prop fixed.

Below: This gives you an idea of the setup used to photograph my model. I took the image just as the sun was coming up. 

 

Anyway--I hope I am not repeating myself with this image. My memory is not what it used to be.

 

PS: I believe the link below is my very first post to this forum. What a kick.

HA !!!

I believe I posted on this beautiful plane on the "other" thread.

TBMs are my favorite warplanes. You gotta love those "big old Turkeys" !

( yea, I know .... I got 4 in the stash...... why are they staring at me ? ....)

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage"

Yeah man. I remember I did post on it, just don't remember if I did with the spinning prop. Sorry if I duplicated. 

Thanks for posting though. Good to hear from you and yeah, they are cool planes. 

Btw. Tell them to stop staring. It is not polite to stare. Big Smile

The blurred prop makes it look much better. Good job.

Hey thanks, Don. I appreciate your comment. It was a fun project and I even managed to get this build published in FSMs reader gallery.

I had hoped to do more of these but I keep picking builds not as conducive to this sort of thing. In 2014, when I started back into the hobby, I had visions of having a wall full of images like this. Here in 2021, I still only have this one. Ah well... it's all about the journey. Indifferent
