That's beautiful, Pat.

I've only recently discovered your blog. I like your approach to modeling, and I like the look of what you produce. This bird is no exception

Years ago, I read your FSM article on weathering the P-47, and it was so refreshing to finally find a professional (for real, in your case) modeler who realized that real aircraft aren't made of sewn together stuffed pillows, held together with stark black stitching.

I think I'll buy your book.

Thanks very much, Ralph. For a while I was saving images as I came across them, of models as you describe -- the most egregious examples. I was going to create a category for them here titled: Models (or Modelers) on Acid. Then I thought, why promote this nonsense in any way? As for my book, it's slightly dated, but continues to sell steadily. God bless you, little book.


Gotta love those 'tween the wars bipes! Beautiful work as always Pat!

Thanks, Tory. Agreed -- hard to beat those airplanes with yellow wings.
