    This is the 1/48 Hasegawa F4U-5N with a Wolfpack resin cockpit. I painted it semi gloss black. I did the struts and wheel wells in gloss blue, then did some post shading with flat black and did some weathering with pastels then gave it a shot of dullcoat. The pics don do it justice, all comments welcomed, Thanks, Rob

    Nice one.......

    Couple of picture hints tho.
    Even tho you have lamps on around it, still use the flash.
    Move the camera back and use the Zoom if it has it.
    If no zoom, get a cheap camera support tripod and use a slower shutter speed.

    This way you'll get a lot more of the plane "in focus".
    Cheers.
